Communication from the Commission to [...], Keep Europe moving - Sustainable mobility for our continent Mid-term review of the European Commission's 2001 Transport White Paper, COM(2006) 314 final

Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

The objective of an EU sustainable transport policy is that our transport systems meet society's economic, social and environmental needs. Effective transportation systems are essential to Europe's prosperity, having significant impacts on economic growth, social development and the environment. The transport industry accounts for about 7% of European GDP and for around 5% of employment in the EU. It is an important industry in its own right and makes a major contribution to the functioning of the European economy as a whole. Mobility of goods and persons is an essential component of the competitiveness of European industry and services. Finally, mobility is also an essential citizen right.
