Join our webinar to get insight on the most important aspects of the legislative proposals affecting the road, aviation and marine transport, fuels and vehicles industries.
SGS INSPIRE will deliver a webinar to provide an overview of the Fit for 55 package, focusing on its possible implications for fuels (road, aviation and marine), vehicles, transportation and energy intense sectors.
We invite you to listen to our analysis of the package which will include:
• Revision of the EU Emissions Trading System (ETS), including maritime and aviation. The EC is also considering including road transport in the ETS
• Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM): which sectors CBAM will cover and how it will operate
• Effort Sharing Regulation (ESR): sets the GHG emission reduction targets for non-ETS sectors (agriculture, transport and buildings)
• Revision of the Energy Taxation Directive: the EC could propose to equalize excise duties between gasoline and diesel, introduce a tax for aviation fuel and a CO2 tax
• Revision of the Renewable energy Directive (RED) to increase the renewable energy share target for transport from the current 14% to 26% by 2030 and set a mandate for hydrogen
• Revision of the Directive on deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure (DAFI) to mainly promote charging stations for electric vehicles
• Revision of the Regulation setting CO2 emission performance standards for new passenger cars and for new light commercial vehicles: the EC plans proposing more stringent CO2 targets for cars and vans
• A mandate for sustainable aviation fuels
• A mandate for sustainable marine fuels
• Revision of the Fuel Quality Directive (FQD):
a. The future of FQD article 7a which sets a mandatory 6% life cycle GHG emission reduction target for energy used by road transport and non-road mobile machinery
b. Increasing the current 7% v/v biodiesel blending limit for conventional diesel to 10% v/v. The current FQD already allows the sale of diesel with biodiesel higher than 7% v/v. However, the EC's proposal will go further than that and allow sales of conventional diesel up to 10% v/v of biodiesel
It will take at least a year and a half for the EU (the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union) to negotiate and approve the aforementioned proposals. After that, EU member states would have around one or two years to transpose the revised proposals into the national legislation.
On July 14, 2021, European Commission (EC) will reveal its long awaited and already intensely discussed legislative package "Fit for 55". This package is expected to propose new legislation and revise some existing legislation to set the EU's pathway toward the block’s goal of achieving a 55% greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction target by 2030, compared to 1990 levels.
The webinar is aimed at all the professionals involved in the fuels and transportation sectors.
