The International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) cordially invites you to join a discussion on post-2020 European policy for alternative fuels. The event presents a vision of a path forward for European fuels policies based on more than a year of exchanges with stakeholders from industry and civil society. This intiative has examined the conditions and boundaries under which such fuels might be developed in a sustainable manner.
