Transport is Europe’s biggest climate problem, representing 27% of the bloc’s greenhouse gas emissions. Learn more about what Transport & Environment is doing to clean it up.
Switching from polluting engines to emissions-free electric vehicles is crucial to decarbonising cars, which are responsible for 12% of all greenhouse gas emissions in Europe.
Emissions from trucks and vans are growing fast. But clean, battery electric trucks and vans are ready today.
Aviation is the most climate-intensive form of transport. Green fuels, new technology and demand reduction can put us on a path to cleaner flying.
Shipping is responsible for over a tenth of transport CO2 emissons and is a major source of air pollution. Thanks to decades of inaction, its environmental impact is growing. But switching to green fuels offers a cleaner future.
Europe’s transport is heavily dependent on oil - around 94% of transport’s energy comes from oil.
The timely decarbonisation of our economy will not be possible without a significant flow of private investments into sustainable economic activities.
Air quality remains a major environmental problem. Europe needs well-enforced air pollution legislation for cars, vans, buses and trucks.
Transforming the way we move around is urgently needed if we want to tackle the air pollution that is killing us and halt the climate crisis.
Rail is one of the greenest modes of transport so having a higher share of passenger and freight journeys performed by train is fundamental for decarbonising the transport sector.
Climate tools are the collection of measures and agreements that can be applied across transport sectors to support actors to achieve rapid and deep decarbonisation.

In reaction to the looming air pollution crisis and the Dieselgate scandal, cities across Europe have introduced or tightened Low-Emission Zones (LEZ).

More than 250 EU cities have already taken such measures. This briefing reviews the evidence available on the justification and effectiveness of LEZ and recommends the way forward.
