Eighteen leading European businesses and organisations are launching today, July 15, 2020, ​the European Clean Trucking Alliance (ECTA​)​,​ ​a unique coalition to call for the ​decarbonisation of road freight in the EU​.

ECTA brings together a broad and diverse range of European players in the road transport of goods such as leading businesses, associations and civil society organisations that share a strong commitment to accelerate the EU’s transition to zero-emissions trucks.

Frans Timmermans, European Commission Executive Vice President for the European Green Deal, says: “A green recovery is good for our health, our economy, and our jobs. I’m pleased to see yet again an impressive group of businesses, NGO’s, and citizens from across Europe coming together in support of this goal. The European Clean Trucking Alliance offers European capitals a concrete project to include in their economic recovery plans: decarbonising truck fleets. With the European Green Deal as its compass, the Alliance can accelerate the move towards zero-emission freight transport for a healthier future and a stronger economy.”

ECTA business members include major hauliers, logistics and consumer goods companies in
Europe and beyond. Altogether, the ECTA business members employ more than 1.6 million people
globally and have over EUR 325 billion yearly revenue.

In its first communication “Europe’s Opportunity to Decarbonise the Road Freight Sector”, ECTA
calls upon the European Commission to make the shift to zero-emissions trucks a priority in
order to meet the ambitious emission targets of the proposed EU Climate Law by 2030 and
achieve a carbon-neutral Europe by 2050.
