Green Transport Policy Agreement

legislation type Executive
Policy
Passed in 2009
The policy's objective is to implement international commitments of emission reductions, predominantly in the transport sector and non-ETS covered sectors. In these sectors, emissions are to be reduced by 20% by 2020 (of 1990 levels).

Key initiatives are aimed at encouraging the use of public transport (buses, railway) and cycling in cities to reduce emissions and create synergies such as reducing congestion and maintaining mobility. They include the 'Drive Green' campaign, energy labelling of vans, green taxies, trials for energy efficiency in transport, certification schemes for municipal and corporate green transport, recommendations for green procurement and investment in expanding the railway system.
