EU Clean Transport

The European Commission is working to improve citizens' quality of life and strengthen the economy by promoting sustainable urban mobility and increased use of clean and energy efficient vehicles.
 
New political challenges have emerged in recent years. Climate change, energy policy, air quality legislation and the difficulties of tackling congestion are just some examples. The objective now is to enhance mobility while at the same time reducing congestion, accidents and pollution in European cities.
