GREENING TRANSPORT & Planco Study “Economical and ecological comparison of transport modes”:
Inland navigation holds best records in the economical and ecological comparison of transport modes
On July 8 the European Commission released its Communications on Greening Transport and Strategy for the internalisation of external costs. The communications intend to introduce initiatives to keep mobility sustainable.
The communication intends to encourage transport users to switch to cleaner vehicles or modes and to use less congested infrastructure in order to avoid the negative effects of transport, where today’s choices of transport modes mostly are based upon traditional patterns without taking into account alternatives.
