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 organised this Stakeholder Forum to discuss the future of mobility in a greener context.

Questions included:

  • 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?
