Environmental Impacts of International Transport
Workshop, Leipzig, 27 May 2009
Transport is increasingly the focus of climate change policies. The 2008 International Transport Forum examined policies to mitigate CO2 emissions from surface transport. Its conclusions on the key measures to reduce emissions are being taken forward, notably through a Global Fuel Economy Initiative with partner organisations. Globalisation has been accompanied by conspicuous increases in the volume of aviation and maritime transport and their emissions of greenhouse gases are growing rapidly. This workshop examined Policies for reducing the environmental impacts of international transport and cut pollution cost effectively to optimal levels.
