Road pavement industries highlight huge CO2 savings offered by maintaining and upgrading roads
04 October 2016
Road transport contributes to about a fifth of the EU’s total emissions of CO2. Unlike other sectors, transport emissions have been generally increasing since 1990. As a result, the EU sets binding targets on cars and commercial vehicles, aiming to steadily reduce vehicle emissions. Heavy-duty vehicles, which contribute to about a quarter of EU road transport CO2 emissions, are not yet subject to binding targets.
