mobility

Mobility and the environment are fully interconnected. Our mobility forum seeks to strengthen the relationship between these issues, with a long-term goal of achieving a fully-integrated approach linking transport, environment and economic development.

We are committed to promoting sustainable and smart approaches to urban mobility, as well as promoting the safety of pedestrians and cyclists in cities. Our mobility forum provides cities with a platform to share best practices on these issues.

Our forum also gives members the opportunity to explore energy efficiency projects and developments being carried out by cities that have already signed up to the Covenant of Mayors initiative, through which city leaders commit to reducing CO2 emissions by at least 20% by 2020. 

Our members continue towards better air quality and reduced noise. We have contributed to the EU Year of Air 2013 by responding to the EU air quality review, as well as providing input into the revision of the environmental noise directive and vehicle noise regulation.

We are also closely following the developments of the ‘smart cities’ initiative, which promotes the uptake of energy efficient and low carbon technologies.

EUROCITIES Statement on the Clean Mobility Package

Clean mobility is a priority for European cities. The impact of transport on urban air quality and the climate has direct consequences on the health of citizens and strength of our cities. The Clean Mobility Package aims to stimulate the market uptake of low- and zero-emission vehicles and strengthen the deployment ambition of alternative fuels infrastructure.

Ghent and Vaasa twinning - European and local ecosystems against climate change

Cities are taking a determined stand against climate change, but for good climate policy to take effect, the private sector must be on board. In Vaasa, the local government has a stake in the 140-company strong ‘Energy Vaasa’, and is cooperating with private enterprises to make its ambitious climate targets – becoming carbon neutral by 2035 – become a reality.
