There are many opportunities in vibrant, urban areas such as our City, to reduce dependence on motor travel and embrace other forms of sustainable transport.
The transport sector is one of the most significant contributors to greenhouse gas emissions, as emissions from transport are increasing at a faster rate than any other energy-use sector.
Sustainable transport refers to any means of transport which has a low impact on the environment, such as walking, cycling, public transport, or electric vehicles powered by renewables.
Sustainable transport objectives include:
- reduction in harmful air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions
- reduced demand for fossil fuels
- safer and more attractive streets and living environments
- healthier living through more active lifestyles.Quick links
