Transport: increasing oil consumption and greenhouse gas emissions hamper EU progress towards environment and climate objectives
Mobility plays a key role in the EU economy. However, the EU transport sector still relies heavily on fossil fuels and is responsible for one quarter of Europe’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions — a share that keeps growing.
