GHG reduction targets proposed by GHG-TransPoRD

Building on the scenario calculations the GHG-TransPoRD project proposed the GHG reduction targets for transport as presented in Table 1. The targets are defined by mode as well as for the total transport sector. The table contains in the upper part reduction targets referring to a GHG emissions base calculated for the year 2010, as the measures implemented and tested in GHG-TransPoRD commence in 2011. The targets have been provided as ranges to express clearly that (1) reduction targets depend also on the reference scenario in future years, and (2) that the numbers include uncertainties.

The lowest row then presents reduction targets for total EU27 transport in comparison with 1990, which is the base year usually applied in climate policy.

GHG reduction targets by mode for EU27 compared to emissions of 2010 and proposed by GHG-TransPoRD

     2020  2030  2050
 Road  Passenger -20% to - 30% &160; -40% to -55%  -70% to - 85% 
   Freight -10% to -20%  -30% to -45%  -40% to - 60% 
 Air   0% to - 5%  -10% to -20%  -40% to -55% 
 Ship   (+15% to 0%)  (+30% to 0%) (+50% to -20%) 
 Rail   +10% to - 10%  0% to - 20%  -10% to - 35% 
 Transport  (excl. ship)  -10% to -20%  -40% to -50%  -70% to -90% 
EU27 target against 1990
 Transport  vs 1990  +10% to +5%  -20% to - 30%  -60% to -70%

It should be pointed out that Table 1 reports on absolute values of GHG emissions such that targets e.g. for rail transport and road freight transport consider modal-shift from road to rail.
