Economic Aspects of Sustainable Mobility

14-10-2011

This study highlights the economic aspects of sustainable mobility by analysing ten bundles of eco-innovations, i.e. instruments which positively enhance the environmental dimension of transport/mobility making the latter more sustainable. They comprise instruments of different types (e.g. regulatory, organisational) and across different modes and are described and analysed within an analytical framework which presents their economic as well as transport, environmental and market failure impact. Findings of the literature review are complemented by an online survey among practitioners, policy makers and experts.
