EU Green Week Event: Mobility
The future of Cross-border Mobility.
The EU Green Week provides an opportunity to engage with relevant stakeholders on how the ambition for a zero pollution and toxic-free environment can be made a reality.
The European mobility sector faces a substantial challenge: while it contributes to around 5% of the EU GDP and employs more than 10 million people in Europe, the transport system comes at a cost of greenhouse gas, pollutant emissions and noise pollution. Overall, the transport emissions represent around 25% of the total GHG emissions in the European Union. It is clear that the Commission’s Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy is a challenging yet necessary initiative, with its goal to reduce the transport-related greenhouse gas emissions by 90% by 2050. As Frans Timmermans, Executive Vice-President for the European Green Deal, said: ‘To reach our climate targets, emissions from the transport sector must get on a clear downward trend. […]. We’ve set ambitious targets for the entire transport system to ensure a sustainable, smart, and resilient return from the COVID-19 crisis.’
Berenschot will organise an EU Green Week event on the 24th of June (15:00-17:00) to discuss the future of cross-border mobility. In addition to a plenary session with three keynote speakers, three workshops will be centred around the building blocks of sustainable cross-border mobility:
- Air-Rail substitution;
- the potential of Hyperloop in European passenger transport;
- and the future of multimodal hubs.
