Department for Transport ministers and officials meet regularly with various interested parties, including counterparts in the European Commission, to discuss the implementation of the Fuel Quality Directive.

I have had meetings with the Commissioner for Climate Action, Connie Hedegaard, with representatives of industry, and with environmental pressure groups.

Recent discussions included the Commission's proposed Directive amending the Fuel Quality Directive and the Renewable Energy Directive to address indirect land use change impacts associated with certain biofuels published in October last year, and implementing measures under article 7a of the Fuel Quality Directive in respect of the calculation of the carbon intensity of fossil fuels.
