2016 European Strategy for low-emission mobility

The European commission recently published the EU strategy for low-emission mobility (Download the strategy here). The strategy sets clear and fair guiding principles to Member States to prepare for the future and shift to low-emission mobility in terms of carbon and air pollutants.

The ambition is clear: by mid-century, greenhouse gas emissions from transport will need to be at least 60% lower than in 1990 and be firmly on the path towards zero. Emissions of air pollutants from transport that harm our health need to be drastically reduced without delay.

The main elements of the Strategy are to:

  • increase the efficiency of the transport system,

  • speed up the deployment of low-emission alternative energy for transport, and

  • move towards zero-emission vehicles.
