The European Biodiesel Board (EBB) has published its manifesto - setting out the legislative priorities for the EU biodiesel industry for the coming years.
In order to reach the EU climate targets, decarbonisation of transport will remain a big challenge, as demand for transport continues to increase.
The manifesto, according to the EBB, highlights how domestic sustainable biofuels can immediately contribute to a low-carbon transport sector.
The upcoming EU legislators must find the right balance and promote an inclusive, pragmatic and affordable climate policy without sacrificing the ambition of a net-zero EU by 2050.
According to the Eurobarometer surveys, over the past five years, the cost of living and climate change have consistently featured in the five most important issues facing the EU.
This confirms that the EU cannot afford to choose between climate and the economy; between sustainability and affordability - we must do both.
“In the run-up to the European elections, sustainability will be one of the most important topics for elected officials. The biggest challenge remains the decarbonization of transport, as the need for transport continues to grow. Biofuels, sourced from sustainable bio-products, continue to be the widest and most available alternative to fossil fuels,” stated Xavier Noyon, Secretary General of EBB.
The manifesto is available on the EBB website: Manifesto for a “Made in Europe” transition towards carbon-neutral transport
