Multimodal Sustainable Transport: which role for the internalisation of external costs?
On behalf of the European Commission (DG MOVE), Ricardo are organising a conference in Brussels to consider first insights and major results from a study contracted out by the Commission on sustainable transport infrastructure charging and the internalisation of transport externalities.
Commissioner for Transport Violeta Bulc:
"In the year of multimodality, this study is important to help reducing the negative impacts from all transport modes, based on "user pays" and "polluter pays principles". Stakeholders have been questioning whether charges are coherent across transport modes. The study will provide guidance on how to promote a balanced and fair charging system across modes and create a truly competitive environment."
During the conference key sector experts will share their views on setting the right price for transport and there will be opportunities for you to discuss and understand the external costs across transport modes; how the ‘playing-field’ for the different modes can be balanced and how to better manage the impact of externalities.
