19th European Transport Congress of the EPTS Foundation e.V @ UNIVERSITY OF MARIBOR
Oct 7 – Oct 8 all-day
19th European Transport Congress of the EPTS Foundation e.V @ UNIVERSITY OF MARIBOR

The “European Green Deal” growth strategy of the European Commission encompasses all relevant sectors of the economy, which it aims to transform through a series of ambitious reforms. The Green Deal can be seen as a comprehensive roadmap aimed at making Europe the first climate-neutral continent by reducing greenhouse gas emissions for 50 % to 55 % by 2030 and zero net emissions by 2050.

Transport currently accounts for a quarter of the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions. The European Green Deal aims to reduce these emissions by 90 % by 2050. Moving towards more sustainable transport means providing innovative, affordable, cleaner, accessible, and healthier alternatives.

Urban areas are the most vulnerable environment. Achieving the Green Deal targets will require a combination of different measures, including clean vehicles, alternative fuels, improvement of public transport, integrated traffic management systems, digitalization of transport, etc.
