EBU’s mission is to contribute to the development of a sustainable and efficient Pan-European transport system via a larger share of inland waterway transport.
Its key objectives are:
to develop the right framework conditions for its members
to stimulate the market position of the sector
to guarantee a well maintained infrastructure without bottlenecks
to increase the share of the inland waterway freight and passenger transport on the (Pan-) European waterways
to promote inland waterway transport as safest, sustainable and environmentally friendly mode of transport
To achieve these goals EBU closely cooperates with the European institutions, the River Commissions, the UN ECE as well as national administrations.
