Towards Smart, Green, Integrated, Transport

Project overview

Why transport?

Transport is at the heart of Europe’s economy, and mobility is a condition for prosperity and welfare. While transport is necessary and desirable, it is the largest growing emitter of GHG emissions which therefore negatively impacts the economy, human health and the environment. Congestion, pollution and depletion of natural resources are all undesirable side-effects of transport, and necessitate strict measures and limits at global, European and national level. A European strategy to make transport cleaner and more sustainable is urgently needed and is one of the priorities of policy makers and regulators.
