Next Previous Costs the transport climate HOME transport
& nbsp & nbspInsider/ΚΥΠΕ & nbsp; & nbsp; The implications of the proposals being discussed at European Union level for the reduction of pollution in transport were presented to MEPs and Commission officials in a series of contacts in Brussels, the Minister of Transport said in a statement from the EU headquarters. Of Communications and Works Giannis Karousos and the Deputy Minister of Shipping Vassilis Dimitriadis.
As they explained, if the proposals are implemented as they are, they will cause additional costs to the airlines that will be borne by the consumers, while the cost of maritime transport will increase and hence the cost of imports. Cyprus, they noted, has analyzed the effects for the country and for other EU countries, and proposes regulations that will limit these effects.
The two Ministers are in Brussels on Tuesday and Wednesday for contacts with MEPs and Commission officials on the “FitFor55” legislative package, which contains measures and proposals aimed at achieving the European Union's climate neutrality by 2050, which The reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030.
The two officials are expected to have further contacts at the level of Ministers as well as the processes for the formulation of the legislative package proposed by the Commission continues between Parliament and the Council.
Mr. Karousos explained in his statements that the contacts concern the promotion of initiatives and concerns of Cyprus, and referred to proposals of Cyprus such as the one for the creation of a “self-allowance mechanism” in order to “motivate the airlines to use more biofuel in a shorter period of time and at a lower cost “.
According to Mr. Karousos, Cyprus has proceeded with an analysis of how the proposals of the legislative package will affect the aviation and the economy of the country as well as the economy of the other EU Member States. This study “is now used as “Cyprus may face a competitive disadvantage if the cost of a flight to Cyprus by 2035 is much higher compared to third countries, such as Egypt and Turkey,” he said. “, Pointed out the Minister of Transport.
He explained that the measures, which will take effect from 2025, are estimated to cost airlines $ 220 million a year, while in 2030 the cost will reach $ 520 million, with estimates that the total cost in 2035 will be reaches 821 million dollars.
Especially in the case of Cyprus, this means that after 2035, the airlines that will operate to Cyprus will have a cost of about 800 million euros.
< p>This cost, he stressed, “will be transferred to passengers, with negative consequences for tourism and the economy.”
“Cyprus with these data and in case our concerns are not taken into account, it is estimated that “It will lose about 15-20% of tourism and there will be a reduction of 1.7% in the country's GDP per year, while by achieving the goal of climate neutrality in 2050, airlines will bear the cost of $ 18 billion.” noted Mr. Karousos.
For his part, the Undersecretary of Shipping recalled in his own statements that shipping is the second most important sector for the Cypriot economy after tourism. Therefore, he added, although shipping should contribute to reducing emissions, the proposals as presented will have a disproportionate cost to the country.
“As you know, all trade inputs in Cyprus – all goods – are transported by sea, and it is estimated that the cost of maritime transport will increase by about 25% by 2032,” explained Mr. Dimitriadis.
Indicatively, Mr. Dimitriadis explained that in the shipping sector the cost of distribution of emissions trading can be “calculated in a way that will allow us to limit any negative effects that appear to occur”.
“We call for the rights recovery mechanism to change its philosophy and be based on the flag State of the ship when it comes to ships flying the flag of an EU Member State and not in the port state”, in other words “we call for the responsibility to be shared who in several cases decides on the purchase of fuel and the mode of operation of the ship “.
” We are also requesting a separate fund for shipping be used to fund research projects aimed at finding and selling alternative fuels of non-fossil origin to the shipping industry, which will lead to “Demitriadis added that the European Parliament recognizes this aspect.
