How to decarbonise European transport by 2050

Transport is Europe's biggest climate problem accounting for 27% of its GHG emissions in 2017. This report summarises a series of studies by Transport & Environment. (T&E analysed pathways for decarbonisation in the road freight, aviation, shipping and car sectors.) It demonstrates that transport can and must be decarbonised by 2050 at the very latest, not only to limit global warming but also to ensure Europe's competitiveness, its energy sovereignty and the health and well-being of its 500 million citizens.

Transport decarbonisation in the EU and Member States: best practices and the future of zero-emissions transport

When? 
Friday, June 14, 2019 - 09:30 to 16:30

This conference will discuss transport decarbonisation in the context of Spain, Italy, Portugal and France the Eastern and Central European EU Member States, with a focus on the 2030 and long-term decarbonisation targets. We aim at discussing challenges, exchanging good practices, having an outlook to the future of transport decarbonisation and enhancing collaboration among stakeholders from like-minded countries.

Transport should lead, not lag, in the shift to a net zero carbon UK economy

Transport & Environment UK (T&E UK) warmly welcomes the recommendation of the Climate Change Committee to increase the UK’s ambition to cut greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050. This is essential for the UK to show international leadership in the battle to prevent dangerous climate change and it can help secure enormous economic opportunities.

E-fuels too inefficient and expensive for cars and trucks, but may be part of aviation's climate solution – study

Electrofuels are neither an efficient or a cost-effective solution to decarbonise road transport, a new independent study has found. The study, conducted by consultancy Cerulogy for NGO Transport & Environment (T&E), concludes that e-fuels could supply a limited amount of aviation's growing energy needs but only if the electricity comes from new renewable sources with strict sustainability criteria. T&E said the EU must ensure only e-fuels produced from renewables, such as wind and solar, can be eligible under the advanced fuels target and that it should adopt measures to avoid double counting of renewable electricity under the Renewable Energy Directive.

Europe shows ambition on cleaner road transport – now it must deliver

The announcement of new CO2 standards for cars, vans and, for the first time in Europe, trucks forms the centrepiece of the EU’s strategy for low-emission mobility and has been welcomed by Transport & Environment (T&E) as a meaningful step in the fight against climate change. But the Commission’s plan is completely devoid of ambition on cutting emissions from aviation and shipping, the sustainable transport group said.

EU plan for road transport emissions going in the ‘right direction’, but planes and ships neglected

The overall direction for road transport in today’s leaked draft of the European Commission strategy for low-emission mobility has been welcomed by Transport & Environment (T&E), though the sustainable transport group has urged stronger action on greenhouse gases from international aviation and shipping.
