Climate-ABC: Transport

To meet the goals of the Paris Agreement, emissions must be reduced significantly. This especially applies to the transport sector.

In 2018, the transport sector was responsible for 42.9% of nitrogen emissions. Motorized road traffic was responsible for the majority of this. On the one hand, more and more energy-efficient drive systems are being developed, but on the other hand, it is only possible to reduce emissions sufficiently if our mobility changes. To achieve this, it is important that more people switch to environmentally friendly alternatives and that traffic is reduced overall.
