Policy issue:  Meet the EU target under the Kyoto Protocol

Key messages

  • The growth in greenhouse gas emissions by transport jeopardises the EU meeting its targets under the Kyoto protocol

Figures

Key assessment

Emissions of CO2 from transport (excluding international aviation and maritime transport) increased by 15% between 1990 and 1998, and now constitute 24 % of total CO2 emissions. The increase resulted mainly from the growth in road and air transport, since energy efficiency has hardly improved. Road transport is the largest contributor (84 % of transport CO2 emissions). If this trend persists, this could jeopardise the EU meeting its targets under the Kyoto Protocol.
