The graph shows development of specific CO2 emissions, defined as emissions of CO2 per transport unit (tonne-km), by freight transport mode (road, rail, maritime, inland shipping) over the period 1995 to 2009.
Specific CO2 emissions data for all transport modes are modelled data derived from TREMOVE (http://www.tremove.org/model/index.htm) and TRENDS (http://www.forum.europa.eu.int/Public/irc/dsis/pip/library?l=/environment_trends).
Specific CO2 emissions are expressed in grams per tonne-kilometer.

At the office, encourage your colleagues to re-use the other side of paper and print less by archiving their emails and attachments. You can also try and create paperless habits. Some studies show that office paper consumption is rising by 20 % per year and web-based technology is actually increasing the printing of documents. On average each worker uses about 50 sheets of A4 per day. Must you print?
