EU greenhouse gas emissions from transport increased in 2015

Total European Union greenhouse gas emissions increased by 0.5 % in 2015, according to new European Environment Agency (EEA) data published on the 1st of June. Transport was a key reason for that increase: better fuel efficiency in that sector was not enough to counter the effects of an increasing demand for transport.
The EU’s total greenhouse gas emissions increased in 2015 for the first time since 2010. Higher emissions were caused mainly by increasing road transport, both passenger and freight, and slightly colder winter conditions in Europe, compared to 2014, leading to higher demand for heating.

CIPTEC (Collective Innovation for Public Transport in European Cities, 2015-2018) project asks from the public to contribute (10 minutes survey) to fill in anonymously the evaluation questionnaire, regarding promising and innovative ideas, concepts and services that could improve the travel experience by Public Transport in European Cities.
The survey is part of CIPTEC, a research project funded by the European Commission through Horizon 2020 Programme. It addresses the challenge for smart, green, and integrated transport. CIPTEC aims at contributing towards the creation of a favourable environment for the growth of Public Transport across Europe.
