Transport and Green Recovery

We know: Climate change will not be stopped without decarbonisation of the transport sector. And: The window of time for initiating and implementing the necessary far-reaching decarbonisation is small. Therefore, comprehensive investments in the decarbonisation of the transport sector are needed worldwide in order to achieve the global climate goals. The stimulus packages that governments have been putting together to recover from the COVID 19 pandemic are a great opportunity for such investments towards a sustainable future. Yet will they be enough to boost the transition?
