GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS FROM TRANSPORT IN THE EU-28
  • In 2015, the transport sector contributed 25.8 % of total EU-28 greenhouse gas emissions.

  • Emissions increased by almost 2 % compared with 2014. International aviation experienced the largest percentage increase in greenhouse gas emissions over 1990 levels (+105 %), followed by international shipping (+22 %) and road transport (+19 %).

  • Emissions need to fall by around two thirds by 2050, compared with 1990 levels, in order to meet the long-term 60 % greenhouse gas emission reduction target as set out in the 2011 Transport White Paper.
