Corporate Travel Campaigner

Did you know that Transport & Environment has shaped some of Europe’s most important environmental laws? In recent years, T&E got the EU to set the world's most ambitious CO2 standards for cars and trucks but also helped uncover the dieselgate scandal, campaigned successfully to end palm oil diesel. We secured a global ban on dirty shipping fuels and the creation of the world's biggest carbon market for aviation - just to name a few.
