Carbon Responsible Transport Bookings and lettings consultation (CLOSED, ARCHIVE CONSULTATION)

The Robert Gordon University and Aberdeen City Council are currently involved in the CARE North Project looking at Carbon Responsible Transport Strategies along with European partners from Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands and the UK. Between 1970 and 2006, global GHG emissions from the transport sector increased by 130%. In 2006, transport accounted for 13% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Although some parts of the North Sea Region have had success in levelling out their overall GHG emissions, transport-related CO2 emissions show no tendency of reduction. This project aims to understand the potential effects of a range of sustainable transport options, and in particular, the impact these would have on CO2 emissions. All the cities involved in CARE North have already implemented a variety of different strategies and projects aimed at reducing carbon emissions from vehicles, including: car club schemes, low emission zoning, support for electric vehicles and the use of cycle networks.
