About us

Europe’s leading clean transport campaign group

Transport & Environment’s (T&E) vision is a zero-emission mobility system that is affordable and has minimal impacts on our health, climate and environment.

Created over 30 years ago, we have shaped some of Europe’s most important environmental laws.

We got the EU to set the world’s most ambitious CO2 standards for cars and trucks but also helped uncover the dieselgate scandal; we campaigned successfully to end palm oil diesel; secured global ban on dirty shipping fuels and the creation of the world’s biggest carbon market for aviation – just to name a few. Just last year T&E’s campaigning led Uber to commit to electrifying much of its European operations.

Our values

Science

Science

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.

Changing laws

Changing laws

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.

Storytelling

Storytelling

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.

Partnership
