Implementing Fiscal and Regulatory Measures to Increase Efficiency and Reduce Emissions

This session will examine the different specific policy levers that are available to decision-makers to improve efficiency in the transport sector and reduce CO2 emissions. These policy tools include regulations, economic instruments such as taxes or charges, and mixed instruments like tradable permits. Combinations of measures and the role of communication and consumer information in supporting them will also be explored, as well as areas where further research and innovation are necessary. Whether similar instruments can be applied across the sector will be examined, as will the appropriate instruments at different levels of Government and in different regions. The session will also ask what should be left to market to work out and where policy intervention is needed.
