The European Commission has recently adopted the Fit for 55 package, aiming to reduce net greenhouse emissions by at least 55% by 2030. This package will ensure that the EU's various sectors are fit to follow through with Europe’s Green transition.

This package will be particularly challenging for the transport sector, which accounts for 20% of total EU greenhouse emissions; where automotive emissions account for over 70%.

We invite you to our online webinar where Mr. Edoardo Turano will discuss how the Fit for 55 package will affect the automotive industry. Mr. Edoardo Turano is the Deputy of Head Unit of Road transport at the Directorate-General for Climate Action. .
