On december 9, the European Commission presented its ‘Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy’ together with an Action Plan of 82 initiatives that will guide our work for the next four years. This strategy lays the foundation for how the EU transport system can achieve its green and digital transformation and become more resilient to future crises. As outlined in the European Green Deal, the result will be a 90% cut in emissions by 2050, delivered by a smart, competitive, safe, accessible and affordable transport system.

Milestones for a smart and sustainable future

All transport modes need to become more sustainable with green alternatives widely available and the right incentives put in place to drive the transition. Concrete milestones will keep the European transport system’s journey towards a smart and sustainable future on track. The measures include:

  • Boosting the uptake of zero-emission aeroplanes, renewable & low-carbon fuels and related infrastructure – for instance by installing 3 million public charging points by 2030.
  • Creating zero-emission airports, for instance through new initiatives to promote sustainable aviation fuels.
  • Having zero-emission large aircraft be market-ready by 2035.
