As we have all become more mobile, the carbon footprint of our transport activities has grown. Transport currently accounts for a quarter of the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions and this figure continues to rise as demand grows. The European Green Deal seeks a 90% reduction in these emissions by 2050. Moving to more sustainable transport means putting users first and providing them with more affordable, accessible, healthier and cleaner alternatives.
Achieving the ambitious climate goals also requires a shift to more sustainable transport modes and alternative fuels. For this to happen, the capacity will need to be both extended and better managed.
