Position paper on the revision of the AFI Directive

Position paper from the Netherlands on the revision of the AFI Directive. Reaching the EU’s target of becoming climate neutral by 2050 and the first step of at least 55 percent net greenhouse gas emissions reduction by 2030, will require a swift transition of the transport sector. As the Commission has stated in its ‘Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy’, the success of the European Green Deal depends on our ability to make the transport sector sustainable. A review of the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Directive (AFID), followed by swift and thorough implementation by the Member States, is a vital condition for meeting the CO2 targets.
