Transport in the EU Budget: Making spending sustainable – Priorities for the TEN-T Guidelines and the Connecting Europe Facility
Briefing | 10 June 2012
Transport is the only sector where greenhouse gas emissions are still increasing. Without decisive new action, transport GHG emissions are expected to grow by 74% until 2050. The Commission has pledged that at least 20% of the proposed €1 trillion EU budget for 2014-2020 will go towards climate mitigation and adaptation goals. This paper outlines how these commitments can be put into practice in the regulations on CEF and the TEN-T guidelines.
