Feedback sought on EU directive mandating purchase of clean vehicles in public sector

The Clean Fleets project has developed a series of policy recommendations which will form the basis of the project’s input into the review of the Clean Vehicles Directive. To help shape its recommendations further, the project is looking for stakeholder feedback. All input will be collected by the project and shared with the European Commission.

The Clean Fleets recommendations outline ways to help increase the uptake of vehicles powered by clean energy within Europe’s publicly owned or controlled vehicle fleets. They are focused mainly on the procurement of clean vehicles, but also touch on broader issues such as financial incentives and the quality of emissions data.

The deadline for providing feedback on the policy recommendations is Friday 26 June. The Clean Vehicles project assists public authorities and fleet operators with the implementation of the Clean Vehicles Directive and the procurement of clean and energy-efficient vehicles.
