  • The good, the bad and the ugly: from Effort Sharing Decision to Climate Action Regulation Submitted on: Wednesday, March 21, 2018 - 17:39

    The Climate Action Regulation (CAR), known previously as the Effort Sharing Regulation (ESR) will become part of European law in 2018. In December 2017 policy-makers reached a deal on what will be one of the key pieces of climate legislation in the decades to come. Fortunately, the agreed deal is an improvement compared to the Commission’s proposal of July 2016. Unfortunately, the agreed text is not aligned with the commitments of the Paris Agreement.

  • Integrating new mobility services in urban transport Submitted on: Tuesday, March 27, 2018 - 14:02

    New mobility services and business models are changing urban transport, affecting both the supply and demand sides of urban mobility market. Evidence shows that these developments can lead to a significant reduction of single occupancy private car use and an increase of public transport use, leading to a strong reduction in congestion, local air pollution, and CO2 emissions. Despite their long term potential, the growth and development of new mobility services are often hampered by existing market access restrictions, operational requirements and financial disincentives. This joint position paper outlines the key recommendations from 10 organisations engaged in promoting new mobility. They are: BMW Group, car2go, European Cyclists' Federation, Mobility Nation, nextbike, Siemens, Transport & Environment, Uber, Zipcar and the City of Vilnius.

  • Dirty diesels heading East Submitted on: Monday, April 9, 2018 - 12:15

    With drivers ditching their diesel cars in view of an increasing number of city bans and low-emissions zones in Western Europe, many of these dirty cars now end up in Central & Eastern EU Member States. This means the air quality problems will be exported, not solved, thus deepening the East-West divide that already exists on air quality in Europe.
