Policy issue: Reduce emissions per passenger-km and per tonne-km.
Technological improvements and cleaner fuels have made vehicles less polluting per transport unit in the EU
No data are available for ACs on specific emissions of vehicles
Data for some countries show that specific emissions from other transport modes have also fallen markedly during the past two decades. One exception is the specific NOx emissions from aircraft, which increased by about 12 % between 1977 and 1988. Shipping is the least polluting mode for freight transport. Aviation and road transport are the most polluting modes.
