What the Commission is doing


By 2050, the EU wants a 60% cut in transport-related greenhouse gas emissions versus 1990 levels and more specifically:

  • No more conventionally-fuelled cars in cities
  • 40% use of sustainable low‑carbon fuels in aviation
  • 40% cut in CO2 emissions from maritime bunker fuels
  • 50% shift of freight journeys greater than or equal to 300 km from road to rail and to waterborne transport
  • Majority of medium‑distance travel completed by rail
  • Complete European high-speed rail network
  • Complete trans-European transport network
  • Progress towards zero road‑transport fatalities
