Declaration Towards Low-Carbon Mobility Planning and Services for Functional Urban Areas

LOW-CARB seeks to increase the use of public transport, foster multimodal mobility and reduce CO2 emissions from private motorized modes, which account for around 90 percent of the total urban transport emissions. It does this by encouraging integrated low carbon mobility planning in functional urban areas, a learning programme and pilot investments.

The declaration is a symbol representing a voluntary statement to embrace the project's objectives by:

  1. introducing or advocating for low-carbon mobility planning in functional urban areas;
  2. co-organising or participating in various activities and events of the project and/ or
  3. initiating or following LOW-CARB’s innovative pilot projects in Central Europe (regularly featured on our website)

Local authorities, public transport companies, city associations, NGOs, ‘low-carb’ consultancies, the media, and related low-carb and planning projects are all invited to sign the Declaration, which is online here
