Revision of Eurovignette fails to green transport


Addressing the European Association for Forwarding, Transport, Logistic and Customs Service (CLECAT), IRU General Delegate to the EU, Michael Nielsen, today stressed that, “the current European Commission approach on internalisation of external costs via the revision of the Eurovignette Directive discounts the significant sustainability gains already achieved by the road transport industry. Internalising external costs only for road transport, without first conducting proper cost benefit analyses, will undermine the EU’s ‘Lisbon Goals’ of growth, jobs and competitiveness and should therefore be stopped by the European Parliament and Council, especially in these times of recession. If the EU continues on this path, the revenues collected are likely to be used to further subsidise other transport modes without any environmental gain! This will only result in a Europe with long lines of unemployed people at job centers.”
