CO2 emission reduction in transport

CO2 emission reduction in transport This report is meant to contribute to the debate between policymakers and research groups on the steps that need to be taken to meet long-term climate targets. This reports shows that the current focus on intermediate targets for the year 2020 needs to be extended to include the long-term targets. Although measures taken for the period up to 2020 may bring long-term emission targets closer, there may be trade-offs when measures which are implemented now will prove to be insufficient to meet long-term targets. Although these trade-offs are difficult to determine, it is important to address them, since ignoring them could hinder a smooth transition to low-carbon energy consumption.
