European Commission publishes CountEmissions EU initiative 

The European Commission published the “CountEmissions EU” initiative on 19 November. This initiative is aimed at setting out a common framework to calculate and report transport-related greenhouse gas emissions which can be applied by both the passenger and freight sector. The initiative will allow service providers to monitor and reduce their emissions and improve the efficiency of their transport services, and will enable users to choose the most sustainable option. 

The Call for evidence is now open for feedback until 17 December at this link. The input received will be taken into account as the European Commission will further develop and fine-tune this initiative. 

ECG is preparing a response which will be published shortly.
