Policy mix in the transport sector

As part of its climate policy the European Union has set the target of reducing the GHG emissions of the transport sector by 60% by 2050 compared to 1990. Key policy instruments on EU level for this sector are the CO2 emission standards (EU 2009b and EU 2011) and the Fuel Quality Directive (EU 2009a), which cover the direct emissions in road transport and the CO2 intensity of the energy supply for the transport sector.
