CHALLENGES & TARGETS

Transport is one of the main causes for climate change in the Alps, almost 30% of all CO 2 -emissions are due to passenger and freight transport. The largest share of Alpine transport emissions is due to long-distance freight transport which can only be decarbonized in a common approach – hand-in- hand with partners at regional, national and European level and with the relevant stakeholders in the transport sector. Similarly, modal shift strategies for passenger transport need to recognize the specific challenges in the Alps as related to cross-border mobility, mobility needs in remote regions as well as specific demand patterns related to tourism traffic.

Targets:

Alpine freight transit transport (> 300km) is shifted to rail, going beyond European modal shift objectives, supported by innovative logistics solutions.

Sustainable mobility solutions (public transport, shared mobility & non-motorized transport) are further supported through an improvement in quality and services to increase accessibility in remote Alpine areas and to reach a higher share of these solutions in the modal split for commuter, leisure and holiday mobility.

Transport demand of both freight and passenger transport is reduced through making use of transport saving spatial structures, new working solutions (i.e. telework), pooling of shipments, regional distribution chains and changed mobility and behavioural patterns.

The road transport fleet is CO2-free (heavy goods and light vehicles), through electric mobility and other alternative drive trains.
