The European Commission will organise a conference entitled 'EU Green Corridors conference: towards climate neutral freight transport' on 9 December 2009 in Brussels, Belgium.
'Green Corridors' are long-distance freight transport corridors where advanced technology and co-modality are used to achieve energy efficiency and reduce environmental impact. Launched in the Freight Transport Logistics Action Plan, Green Corridors support the EU's agenda towards decarbonising transport while emphasising the need for efficient logistics. The conference aims to take stock of existing Green Corridor projects across Europe, discuss the main issues related to their implementation and launch new initiatives in support of the Green Corridor concept.
A registration form is available online.
