IRU Resolution on environment-friendly coaches and trucks, (2003)
Taken account of the IRU’s 3 “i” strategy to achieve sustainable development, this IRU Position stresses that most of the technical solutions needed to meet the Euro 4 and Euro 5 standards require low sulphur diesel, which will only be available in the European Union as of 2009, and that road transport operators are not willing to invest in low sulphur diesel engines until such times as this fuel is made available. The IRU therefore calls on the EU and national authorities to ensure the availability of low sulphur diesel, and to provide incentives for road transport operators who apply the latest environmentally-friendly standards.
