Last updated: 12 June 2023

The aim of the FuelEU Maritime initiative, which is a part of the Fit for 55 package, is to increase the use of sustainable alternative fuels (SAF) in European shipping and ports (as they account for 11% of all EU CO2 emissions from transport). In order to reach EU’s ambition of climate-neutrality by 2050, the European Commission aims to address market barriers that hamper the use of SAF as well as support technological options that are market-ready. 

In March 2023, the Council and the European Parliament reached a provisional agreement on the FuelEU Maritime initiative, and will be implemented pending their formal approval.
