CO2 emissions from transport are still rising. If immediate action is not taken, more radical measures will be unavoidable in the future. This is the top line conclusion from the newly released joint report by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), REN21 and the Berlin-based think-tank Agora Verkehrswende.
This report provides an overview of GFEI’s work globally, highlighting how improved vehicle fuel economy is vital for tackling climate change. It was published to coincide with the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco in September 2018.
This publication discusses the real-world performance data of low-carbon buses in the People’s Republic of China. It also reviews the environmental and financial impacts, as well as the policies used to promote them.
This update provides details on the latest policy measures that six select European Union member states (Denmark, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Sweden, the United Kingdom) are taking to support the deployment of advanced alternative fuels.
Transport is Europe's biggest climate problem accounting for 27% of its GHG emissions in 2017. Transport pollution is causing the illness and premature deaths of hundreds of thousands of Europeans. Meanwhile the EU spends over 200 billion a year importing oil to power its transport fleet.
Motorcycles are a dominant form of transport in many cities, especially throughout Asia. This Sourcebook describes the challenges of this trend and provides an overview on measures to counter the rising emissions from two-stroke two-and three-wheelers in developing cities.
Emissions from the EU transport sector are not reducing enough to limit its environmental and climate impacts in Europe. Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transport have increased over the last three years, whilst average CO2 emissions of new passenger cars increased for the first time in 2017.
Transport is Europe’s biggest source of carbon emissions, contributing 27% to the EU’s total CO2 emissions, with cars representing 45% of these. Transport is also the only sector in which emissions have grown since 1990, driving an increase in the EU’s overall emissions in 2017.
