EuDA Internal Workshop on
“EU Emissions Trading System & Other ‘Fit For 55’ Initiatives For Dredgers”

Wednesday 16 February 2022, 10.00 Via Ms Teams
The ‘Fit for 55’ package, adopted on 14/07/2021, is a major policy and legislative package designed to deliver the Green Deal’s objectives. The European Commission proposals aim to make the EU's climate, energy, land use, transport and taxation policies fit in achieving a net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030, compared to 1990 levels. The package consists of a set of inter-connected proposals, which all drive towards the same goal of ensuring a fair, competitive and green transition by 2030 and beyond, by applying the ‘Polluter-Pays’ principle. Where possible existing legislation is made more ambitious and where needed new proposals are put on the table.
Overall, the package strengthens 8 existing pieces of legislation and presents 5 new initiatives, across a range policy areas and economic sectors: climate, energy and fuels, transport, buildings, land use and forestry.
