What will be the impact on GHG reduction and on industry and consumers?

Discussion with the Director-General of DG Taxud Gerassimos Thomas

Watch the recording:

The Commission has proposed a complete and highly ambitious overhaul of the Energy Taxation Directive.

The proposal, if accepted, would extend the scope of the Directive, requiring, for example, taxation of fuel for maritime and aviation would increase minimum tax levels, and would introduce a taxation system based on fuel categories focused on GHG levels.

Director-General Thomas will provide an overview of the proposal, how he sees the procedure progressing (it requires unanimous Council agreement), and what will be the consequences for business and citizens.
