CO2 emission reduction in transport

This report is meant to contribute to the debate between policymakers and research groups on the steps that need to be taken to meet long-term climate targets. This reports shows that the current focus on intermediate targets for the year 2020 needs to be extended to include the long-term targets. Although measures taken for the period up to 2020 may bring long-term emission targets closer, there may be trade-offs when measures which are implemented now will prove to be insufficient to meet long-term targets. Although these trade-offs are difficult to determine, it is important to address them, since ignoring them could hinder a smooth transition to low-carbon energy consumption.
