We make a difference by supporting sustainable transport

Green transport is one of the core priorities in the EU Green Deal. By 2050, the EU must cut transport emissions by 60% compared with 1990 levels and continue to reduce vehicle pollution.

Our projects support the European visions through zero-emission fuels, innovative vehicles, city planning, and modal shifts. This contributes to a more liveable, low-carbon society. Your benefits? Less congestion, less air pollution, and systems that encourage you to walk and cycle more.
