FTAI seminar: Ireland goes green

[ January 30, 2020   //   ]

FTA Ireland (FTAI)’s annual Transport Manager Seminar will give guidance on sustainable transport following the launch of the European Commission’s Green Deal that aims to transform Europe into a climate-neutral economy by 2050. This year’s ond-day event will be on 25 March 2020 at the Johnstown House Hotel Spa in Enfield, County Meath.

FTAI general manager, Aidan Flynn, commented: “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 chief executive 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.”

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.

Cost for FTAI members is €200 plus VAT; for non-FTAI members the fee is €250 plus VAT. An early bird rate of €175 plus VAT is available for those booking places before 14 February 2020.
