Transport, Telecommunications and Energy Council: Fit for 55 package

The Fit for 55 package aims to help the EU reach its target of reducing net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030 compared to 1990 and become climate-neutral by 2050. On the 9th of December 2021, the Council discussed the overall progress on the Fit for 55 package of legislative proposals in different Council configurations. Ministers then had their first formal discussion on each of the three Fit for 55 transport proposals – ReFuelEU Aviation, FuelEU Maritime and alternative fuels infrastructure – in order to guide further work on these files. These proposals will play a significant role in the EU’s efforts to cut its transport emissions by 90%, which is a pre-requisite for meeting the 2050 climate neutrality goal.
