Figure text/texmacs UK city transport ecological footprints
Selection from 60 cities including the cities with the lowest and highest transport footprint
Located in Data and maps Maps and graphs
SOER Key fact Urban - key fact 3
Urban transport accounts for 70 % of the pollutants and 40 % of the greenhouse gas emissions from European road transport.

SOER Message Urban environment — key message 1
For the three-quarters of Europe's population that lives in cities and towns, a good urban environment is a precondition for a good quality of life. This quality of life depends inter alia on clean air and water, efficient transport, low noise levels and green spaces.

SOER Message Urban environment — key message 4
Despite some improvements, European cities and their inhabitants will still face a number of important challenges in the future. They are highly vulnerable to many impacts of climate change such as heat waves, water scarcity, flooding, and related health problems, and will still need to cope with high transport loads, air quality problems, noise and loss of green areas.

Figure Variation of CO2 emissions from transport (EU-27)
The figure shows the variation of CO2 emission from transport, EU-27 level CO2 represent around 99% of the sector’s greenhouse gas emissions. Emissions from international air transport are not included in countries’ emissions (UNFCCC methodology).

Figure Variation of CO2 emissions in transport (EU-27)
The figure shows the variation of CO2 emissions in transport for EU-27. CO2 emissions for total transport can be split into 2 explanatory effects: an activity effet illustared by an increase in traffic of passengers and freight, CO2 savings due to the reduction in the specific emissions of vehicles per unit of traffic

Figure Variation of CO2 emissions from transport (EU-27)
CO2 emissions for total transport and main modes (road, rail, water, domestic air) are directly extracted from EEA inventories. CO2 emissions by road transport modes (cars, trucks and light vehicles, bus) are calculated from energy consumption by modes according to a sample of 15 countries available in ODYSSEE and extrapolated to EU-27.

Figure Vehicle ownership and truck intensity in the EEA
The graph shows development of vehicle ownership, defined as number of passenger vehicles per 1 000 inhabitants, and truck intensity, defined as number of trucks per million euro GDP in constant 1995 prices , over the period 1995 to 2009.
