European Clean Trucking Alliance Launches Call for Zero Emissions Haulage


The recently-launched European Clean Trucking Alliance (ECTA) has called for the rapid decarbonisation of the road freight sector.

The ECTA is made up of over twenty companies and organisations, who together are lobbying the EU to accelerate progression towards zero-emission trucking, which is crucial in meeting the emission targets of the proposed EU Climate Law by 2030 and achieving a carbon-neutral Europe by 2050.

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

There are approximately 40 million vehicles delivering across Europe, with trucks carrying more than three- quarters of all freight transported over land. As road freight activity is expected to double by 2050, ECTA aims to support the EU in the development and implementation of sustainable road freight transport policies to drastically reduce CO2 and air pollutant emissions.
