About us

Europe’s leading advocates for clean transport and energy

Our vision is a zero-emission mobility system that is affordable and has minimal impacts on our health, climate and environment.

For over 30 years, we've shaped key European environmental laws. We got the EU to set the world’s most ambitious CO2 standards for cars and trucks; helped uncover the dieselgate scandal; campaigned successfully to end palm oil diesel; secured a global ban on dirty shipping fuels and the creation of the world’s biggest carbon market for aviation. In 2022, T&E’s campaigning led to the EU ending the sales of new combustion engine cars and vans by 2035.

We are registered in the EU Transparency Register (our number is 58744833263-19).


They said it couldn't be done: T&E at 30

Our values

Credibility is our key asset. We are therefore a non-profit organisation and politically independent, and we are strong believers in the power of science and evidence in policymaking. Our team is made up of experts in the field and every piece of evidence we put out is thoroughly reviewed to ensure accuracy.

More about T&E's modelling and analysis work

We believe in transformation through legislation. Our targeted advocacy focuses on realistic and tangible policymaking goals to make real change happen. In doing so we go after the big guys, not the small guys.

Expertise and credible research are not enough on their own. We back this up with memorable stories that shape the policy debate. We work through multiple media and digital channels to ensure T&E’s message reaches the right people at the right time.

T&E is built on partnerships. Our staff in Brussels, Rome, Paris, Madrid, London and Berlin collaborate with 51 member organisations in 24 countries across Europe. All together our members and supporters represent more than 3.5 million people. We hold a seat on the board of ECOS, and are members of the Green 10 group of European environmental NGOs, Agora Verkehrswende, the Platform for Electromobility, the Coalition for Energy Savings, the Renewable Grids Initiative and the Electrification Alliance as well as part of a number of expert working groups.

More about our members

T&E embraces the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion both internally, in our hiring process and organisational culture, and externally, in our procurement and related practices. We care about and hold these values essential both because this is the right thing to do and because it is the smart thing to do. Read more from our DEI statement below.
