Todts is the Executive Director of T&E, steering the organisation to promote, at the EU and global level, policy that ensures cleaner, safer, smarter transport. William joined the organisation in 2011. As climate and freight director, he has led the campaign to regulate CO2 emissions from trucks in Europe for the first time. He also campaigned successfully to get cleaner and safer trucks on European roads as well as for the 95 gramme CO2 emissions target that new cars must achieve by 2021. A Belgian native, William started his career in Brussels working for an MEP, after which he joined Belgium’s EU presidency team to help negotiate the first CO2 standards for vans. In his spare time he is a 'cyclopath' for two-wheeled transport and on weekends can be found cycling one of the city's green ways. A history graduate, William also enjoys reading about classical antiquity, especially Rome.
