The transport sector currently holds the national record of greenhouse gas emissions. Reduce the CO emissions₂ in transport is therefore one of the primary objectives of a policy aimed at green economy.
In light of this need, the Foundation for Sustainable Development, in partnership with the Ministry of the Environment, produced the report entitled “Towards a plan to reduce CO emissions₂ in transport ", containing the guidelines of a green policy in the transport sector.
The research will be presented to Rome on February 14, 2013 at the Sala di Liegro, in the seat of the Province of Rome (Palazzo Valentini) with the participation of the Minister of the Environment Corrado Clini, of the President of the Foundation for Sustainable Development Edo Ronchi and a representative ofEuropean Agency for the Environment. The aim is to define a reference framework for the development of a plan CO reduction₂ in the transport sector in Italy.
The research, both in the analysis phase and in the development of the plan scenario, has followed the approach ASI (Avoid / reduce, Improve and Shift), adopted by EEA ed UNEP, which consists in dividing the lines of intervention into three fundamental strands: reduce the demand for transport, pass to less polluting modes of transport, technologically improve means of transport and fuels.
The research therefore outlined its own hypothesis of a national plan scenario with targets in 2020 and 2030 starting from the indications coming from the participatory process of States General of the Green Economy, whose proposals were presented with the Ministers Corrado Clini e Corrado Passera on 7 and 8 November last in Rimini.
