Transport, energy and the environment

Transport is the source of nearly a third of the European Union’s total greenhouse gas emissions. Their reduction, particularly in the context of the Kyoto Protocol, requires research and the introduction of alternative solutions, specifically in the road transport sector. The Union has thus defined a policy to promote biofuels and the reduction of emissions in road and air transport. Shipping also presents the problem of marine pollution. The Union intervenes to limit pollution caused by vessels, as well as to penalise malicious conduct.
