When it comes to transport emissions growth Poland is Europe’s leader. From 2005 to 2017 total GHG emissions from transport grew by +76% (EU average -3%).

At the same time the number of registered cars in Poland is growing by ca. 1 million vehicles a year, which is mostly due to the import of second hand cars from Western Europe. In 2020 EVs made up only 1,9% of the market share in Poland, which was below the EU average of 10,5%.

T&E Poland advocates for promoting the uptake of electric vehicles in road transport, as well as introducing better urban policies and prioritizing electric public transportation.

It is advocating for ambitious policies on national level and EU level.
