IWT position on the Fit for 55 Package and the Energy Taxation Directive proposal – press release
The IWT sector warns that the ‘Fit for 55 package’ might undermine the objectives of the EU Green Deal as further elaborated in the Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy and in NAIADES III. Whereas these policies and action plan are focusing on a modal shift towards IWT and rail, the ‘Fit for 55 package’ is not linked to these objectives and through certain measures – in particular those laid down in the proposed revision of the Energy Taxation Directive – might lead to a reverse modal shift.
