Summary
Globally, transportation is currently responsible for 24% of direct CO2 emissions from fuel combustion. Road vehicles – cars, trucks, buses and two- and three-wheelers – account for nearly three-quarters of transport CO2 emissions, and emissions from aviation and shipping continue to rise. COP26 Dialogues on Sustainable Transport looks at how we can transform a major industry to one that is carbon-free.
