Joint Working Sessions of commissions – Transport Law and Environmental and Energy Law

Black Smoke or a Blue Sky on the Horizon – Transport and the Environment


General reporters: Nicoletta Kroeger and Sarah Wolf

Vessels, aircrafts, trains and lorries – equal treatment before the law in view of their impact on the environment? The aim of the workshop is to verify whether the four main means of transport, i.e. vessels, aircrafts, trains and lorries, are treated reasonably equally before the law in view, inter alia, of their shipping volumes in relation to their emissions and their impact on and danger for the environment by accidents or collisions, or if there is – for whatever reason – a regulatory overkill with regard to one or more of the means of transport. The discussion will not only consider International and European law but also the laws of different states.
