Transport and Covid-19: responses and resources

Advancing Sustainable Mobility in Greece

ITF Meeting ITF Meeting

The Greek National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP) has set a target of achieving a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions of 40% relative to 1993 levels by 2030. This equates to more than 55% reduction compared to 2005 levels. Transport is one of the sectors that will be targeted for reductions. Greece is already actively promoting the uptake of zero-emission vehicles in its national fleet and the development of charging infrastructure. Similarly, Greece organised the development of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans through its SUMPs law (4784/2021); offering tools to help local authorities in their efforts to develop and monitor SUMPs has been identified as a key priority by the national government.

The Recharge and Refuel: Clean, Smart, and Fair Urban Mobility project supports Greece in these efforts. It is funded by the European Union via the Technical Support Instrument and implemented by the International Transport Forum (ITF), in cooperation with the European Commission’s DG REFORM.

The expected long-term effect of the project is the accelerated uptake of electromobility and sustainable urban mobility and logistics in Greece. In the short/medium term, the action is expected to support improvement in the provision of EV charging infrastructure and supportive policy measures, as well as the development of evidence-based SUMPs via the provision of support tools and guidance on plan monitoring. The outputs delivered as part of this project will be presented in this one-day event; the final reports will be available online in English and Greek in September 2024.
