COP21 is fast-approaching and the EU Transport scene is actively seeking to find solutions to limit carbon emissions, especially since now shipping and aviation emissions are part of the final draft agenda for COP21. The TRAN Committee will meet on 3 December to discuss new categories for serious road infringement and aviation safety. Mid-December, the Transport Council will convene its last meeting of 2015 – rumour has it that leaders might retreat on their controversial stance on vehicle emissions. Finally, the trialogue negotiations on the 4th Railway package are ongoing, but it is highly unlikely that an agreement will be reached by the end of 2015. Dave Keating has the story.
