This one-day TSU / JM-ICERT workshop aims to (a) assess trends of freight transport carbon footprints, policies and measures and (b) to examine energy efficiency pathways of passenger cars. This workshop is split into two sessions: one on low carbon freight transport (EU and North America regions) and a second one on fuel use of passenger transport. In the context of the failure at Copenhagen to reach a global agreement on GHG mitigation for transport it is essential to devise the institutional mechanism for global fuel economy targets for freight and for passenger transport modes.
