EU revises transport pricing indicators
The European environment agency (EEA) has revised the indicators it uses to monitor integration of environmental concerns into European transport pricing policies. The change affects indicators used in the transport and environment reporting mechanism (Term) (EED 11/09/01). It comes as transport pricing moves up the EU political agenda: ministers are discussing European Commission plans for a new road pricing regime (EED 03/06/04) while the Commission itself is developing a greener vehicle taxation system (EED 21/07/04). The current Dutch presidency has made sustainable mobility one of its priorities (EED 02/07/04). See EEA Term report.
