WindEurope response to the European Commission roadmap on Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy
The European Union is at the forefront of international efforts to combat climate change. The European Green Deal has set ambitious targets: climate neutrality by 2050 & reducing transportrelated greenhouse gas emissions by 90% by 2050. Transport is the only sector in Europe in which emissions have increased in the last decades. Today, transport emissions represent more than 25% of Europe’s greenhouse gas emissions. And European transport needs are expected to grow by 2050, hence the urgency to tackle this issue.
WindEurope welcomes the European Commission roadmap on the Sustainable & Smart Mobility Strategy and calls for this Strategy to:
- Boost the development of zero-emission vehicles and to be aligned with the European Green Deal & Recovery Plan
- Foster the necessary infrastructure for the uptake of zero-emission transport
- Factor in consumers acceptance and incentives to achieve zero-emission mobility
