The mobility and transport sector is one one of the cornerstones of society and the economy: it connects people and allows producers to sell their products worldwide. Furthermore, transport networks guarantee access to essential public services, contributing to improving the quality of life.
However, it is also a sector with significant negative impacts for the environment and human health. Transport is at the source of a quarter of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions generated in the European Union and cause air pollution, noise pollution and habitat fragmentation. Specifically, it is the only one of the main European economic sectors which has registered an increase in the presence of the GHF since 1990 and it is also the one that most contributes to nitrogen oxide emissions, which are harmful to health and to the environment. These important challenges have to be faced by combining business competitiveness and innovation of all the stakeholders, manufacturers and logistic operators alike, involved in the sector.
