IRU Observations on the European Commission Urban Mobility Package - 2014
With its new urban mobility package, the European Commission shares its vision of competitive and resource-efficient urban mobility in the EU and announces its future actions. The IRU welcomes the package and shares the Commission’s objective of encouraging the development of sustainable urban logistics and mobility systems in the EU to give equal value to the three pillars of sustainability: economic development, social equity and environmental protection. However, the IRU regrets that the EC limits itself to proposing non-binding initiatives. Indeed, the IRU is strongly concerned with the increasing use of vehicle access regulations in Member States and considers that EU-wide harmonisation is much needed in this area.
