Carbon-free transport (Climate Infokit: brochure)

This brochure describes possible ways to decarbonize transport. Special attention is drawn to the fact that the achievement of climate neutrality of transport is achieved primarily not by technical solutions, but by organizational ones — by avoiding excessive travel and transportation and by choosing the right modes of transport that are the most climate-friendly, environmentally and socially friendly. Successful solutions in this area in the Nordic countries are described. The brochure is published in Russian.

The energy efficiency of various technical methods of transport decarbonization is compared. All these methods are described — electric transport with a contact network, electric transport, hydrogen transport, synthetic fuel transport and biofuel transport - and their advantages and disadvantages are analyzed. Attention is drawn to the fact that the decarbonization of transport can be carried out within the time required for the implementation of the Paris Agreement, only if, first of all, the modes of transport that ensure minimal energy losses are developed. The environmental and social problems associated with transport and the role of climate-friendly modes of transport in solving these problems are considered.

The brochure is intended for environmental activists working in the field of global climate change, teachers, journalists, specialists of municipalities and the general public.

This brochure is part of an information package developed to raise awareness about possible ways to counter the climate crisis by the Russian Socio-Ecological Union and Friends of the Baltic in cooperation with AirClim (Sweden), Naturvernforbundet (Norway), EcoEnergy (Finland), Green Planet (Russia) and through the exchange of experience with many other public organizations in the North-West of Russia and the Nordic countries.
