On 25th January 2012, Goodyear Dunlop hosted Europe's leading commercial fleets, industry leaders and transportation policy makers in Brussels for a one-day symposium.
The symposium was opened by Siim Kallas, Vice-President of the European Commission in charge of Transport. In his speech, Mr. Kallas welcomed the "Driving Fleet Fuel Efficiency" initiative presented today. Road freight is a key element of the economic system and its sustainable development is essential for the long term competitiveness of Europe. He also underlined that increased energy efficiency should be a bridge to alternative fuels. To meet the policy objectives of the EU's "Roadmap to a Single European Transport Area", the EU needs a clear and coherent vision helping to accelerate the use of alternative transport fuels.
