Focus Area

Clean and active mobility

The European Green Deal has set an ambitious objective of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Cities have a key role if the EU is to achieve a 90% reduction in transport-related emissions by 2050. Phasing out polluting vehicles is a crucial part of this clean mobility vision, and there are many ways they can be replaced. Zero-emissions vehicles are an obvious choice, but cities can also create an integrated, connected, inclusive and active transport system with infrastructures that cater to all user’s needs. A system that runs on clean fuels and makes light mobility options such as cycling and walking an obvious choice. This vision has become increasingly feasible following the switch to active mobility due to the COVID-19 crisis. Cities also want to improve policies related to ports, airports and urban freight emissions. This is increasingly urgent to address the challenges linked to the on-demand economy.
