Diplomats limber up for ‘Fit for 55’ transport laws negotiations


With positions on the EU’s ‘Fit for 55’ climate laws mostly defined, the coming months will see the European Parliament and Council enter negotiations. The outcomes of this inter-institutional wrangling will shape transport policy across the EU for decades to come. 

In aviation, while clean aircraft powered by electricity and hydrogen remain on the distant horizon, the short-term play to slash aircraft emissions is the roll-out of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF). 

Under the “ReFuelEU Aviation” proposal, all aircraft refuelling at EU airports will be required to uplift a set percentage of SAF blended with kerosene. 

In the Maritime sector, EU efforts to decarbonise the bloc’s shipping sector are centred on “FuelEU Maritime”. FuelEU Maritime sets incrementally rising targets to reduce the greenhouse gas intensity of the fuel used on board ships. 

Lastly, the biggest Fit for 55 hurdle has been cleared in the road transport sector: The Parliament and Council have agreed to end the sale of petrol and diesel cars by 2035.
