Europe needs to slash its transport emissions by 94% by 2050 - Effort Sharing Regulation

A study by the respected Öko-Institut in Germany says Europe needs to slash its transport emissions by 94% by 2050. That's what it takes to avoid catastrophic 2 degree warming. Meanwhile, EU governments – particularly Italy and Poland – are trying to destroy the already inadequate target of -30% by 2030.

Emissions reduction strategies for the transport sector in Poland

Poland has to reduce its non-ETS greenhouse gas emissions by 7% in 2030, and transport is one of the highest emitters within these non-ETS sectors. As a result, and also to comply with the EU's long-term decarbonisation goals and the Paris agreement, Poland must take urgent and robust action to reduce the emissions in transport. In this report for the European Climate Initiative (EUKI), T&E analyses and proposes a series of key actions that Poland should undertake to significantly cut transport greenhouse gas emissions.

Transport costs Europe €1 trillion in pollution and congestion – and citizens, not polluters, pay the price

European transport is costing society over €1 trillion a year through air pollution, carbon emissions, congestion, accidents and other ‘external costs’, a major new study by the European Commission has found. And citizens rather than transport users are paying most of these costs – in violation of the ‘polluter pays’ principle. Green transport group Transport & Environment said that governments can fix this by shifting taxes away from citizens’ incomes and instead taxing the sources of pollution and congestion.

EU publishes climate strategy to exit oil

Europe should end carbon emissions from transport by 2050, the European Commission said today in a new long-term climate strategy welcomed by federation of transport NGOs Transport & Environment (T&E). Moving away from oil in transport means avoiding catastrophic climate change and gaining cleaner air, energy independence and greater competitiveness. Now national governments should support the EU's ambition and make Europe the world’s leader on climate, T&E said.

IPCC report puts extra pressure on EU ministers to cut car and aviation emissions

Today the world’s leading climate change scientists were crystal clear: transport needs to drastically reduce and eventually eliminate its emissions as soon as possible for the world to stand a chance to limit global warming to 1.5°C and avoid catastrophic climate change. The special report by the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) stresses the urgency of strong action across all transport modes. European NGO federation Transport & Environment (T&E) warns that transport is Europe’s biggest climate problem where carbon emissions are growing faster than in any other sector.
