Transportation is a major contributor in global climate change. According to the International Energy Agency, it accounts for almost 23% of the world’s total carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuel combustion. Therefore transportation is the prime target for reducing air pollution and obtaining sustainable development. Thus green transportation practices become all the more a necessity.
In Greece, 40% of the total energy consumption comes from the transport sector. The country is one of the most depended in terms of fuel imports. Almost 20% of the Greek private vehicles uses old technology. The fleet of heavy vehicles is the oldest in comparison to other EU countries. Greece ranks no 1 in the private vehicle utilization frequency. Concerning logistics that are responsible for 1/3 of CO2 transport emissions in EU, an increase up to 50% is expected until 2050.
