Greening mobility: Are we acting fast enough?

Greening mobility: Are we acting fast enough?

Transport has brought plenty of benefits to society, providing jobs, connecting people and moving goods. It now has to face its next challenge: reduce its greenhouse gas emissions.

The sector – from cars to planes, from ships to heavy-duty trucks – represents a significant part of the EU economy and will have to go through a major transformation to reduce its emissions as Europe moves towards a modern, low-carbon economy.

Electricity is just one option. There are a number of other alternatives, such as biofuels, hydrogen, E-fuels and gas.

EURACTIV invites you to this Stakeholder Forum to discuss the future of mobility in a greener context.

Questions will include:

- What role for alternative fuels in decarbonising the transport sector?
- How can we decarbonise cars, ships and planes?
- Can we find a one-size-fits-all solution that applies to all transport sectors?
- What are the socio-economic costs linked to a green transition in transport?
- How can on-going investment and research in new solutions be incentivised?

Aviation and shipping set to face differing fortunes under EU Green Deal

While planes, trains, and automobiles can expect particular attention under the EU’s upcoming Green Deal, the new Commission has already set its sights on cleaning up the transport industry - the only sector of the European economy where emissions are still growing.
