The Figure is showing average annual growth rates of different means of transport within the EU-27 in the period between 1995-2007. (Actual yearly growth rates are of course differing from the averages used in Fig 6.1.) The values for Air and Sea travel only include domestic and Intra-EU-27 transport. Most numbers are based on estimates and data for Air and Sea are provisional estimates.

Encourage your workplace to develop a sustainable transport policy for business trips. You can buy carbon credits to off-set flights, minimise physical meetings involving travel by using conference or video-calls or take a sleeper train instead of flying.
