EEA TERM Report Finds Efficiency Gains of Clean Vehicle Technology Being Offset By Ongoing Increases in Travel

Green Car Congress

The report’s findings for the period 1997–2007 present a mixed picture, with some improvements in air pollutants and serious concerns regarding persistent growth in transport’s greenhouse gas emissions. Transport, including international aviation and maritime transport, accounts for around a quarter of total EU greenhouse gas emissions. On the other hand, implementing such changes will require a paradigm shift in planning approaches.

EEA Report: Trends in European Transport Are Heading in the Wrong Direction

Green Car Congress

Indexed European transport sector greenhouse gas emissions, 1990-2006. Transport continues to contribute disproportionally to Europe’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, poor air quality and noise, and still uses the least efficient modes to move people and goods according to a new report from the European Environmental Agency (EEA). We still need clear, measurable, realistic and time related targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, air emissions and noise from transport.
