Following the launch of the landmark European Green Deal, FTA Ireland (FTAI)’s annual Transport Manager Seminar will provide representatives from the logistics industry with guidance on sustainable transport operations. This year’s event will be on 25 March 2020 at the Johnstown House Hotel Spa in Enfield, County Meath.
Aidan Flynn, General Manager of FTAI, comments: “The European Commission’s bold plan to transform Europe into a climate-neutral economy by 2050 creates challenging targets for the transport industry; FTAI’s Transport Manager Seminar will help guide operators on their journeys to decarbonisation. With an informative and inspiring programme, including sessions by the CEO of the National Transport Authority, Anne Graham, and FTAI president and Head of Delivery at BOC Gases, Niall Cotton, this event is essential to any transport manager seeking to align themselves with the ambitions of the European Green Deal.”
During a packed one-day programme, the seminar will also include an update from Secretary General of the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport, Mr Graham Doyle, on the work the Department is undertaking to help industry transition to more sustainable operations. The event is sponsored by Brigade Electronics, Bridgestone, The Harris Group, Enprova and EMO Oil; Fleet Magazine is the media partner.
Mr Flynn continues: “With government planning to increase taxation on the worst emitting operations, Calor Gas will be on hand to discuss using liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a cleaner fuelling technology. Information gained in these sessions will prove vital to achieving the European Commission’s aim for a climate-neutral economy by 2050 and should not be missed.”
