Smart, green and integrated transport aims to boost the competitiveness of European transport industries and achieve a European transport system that is resource-efficient, climate-and-environmentally-friendly, safe and seamless for the benefit of all citizens, the economy and society.

Sustainable chemistry will contribute to greener vehicles providing energy efficient mobility with low or no emissions. The chemical industry is a key provider of lightweight materials for improved energy efficiency, better battery technologies for electric vehicles, and alternative fuel technologies and exhaust treatment systems for internal combustion driven vehicles.

Emissions from transport affect the health of citizens, especially in urban environments, and also contribute to climate change. Low or no emissions technologies for mobility can make a huge difference to air quality and the urban environment.
