Transport In Transition 2023 By DNV

Our global transport system is already responsible for a quarter of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

But by then the relative contribution of transport to global emissions will have risen to one third, implying that the sector needs to tackle decarbonization with a much greater sense of urgency.
