Sustainable transport matters to us all. The shift to zero-emission, autonomous modes of transportation concerns everyone. The European Green Deal strategy on sustainable and smart mobility seeks to make transportation safer, more accessible and affordable while at the same time cutting emissions by 90% within 2050.
