Topics / Transportation Roadmap

Well-vetted data and information are the key to putting transportation and environmental policy on a sound foundation globally. Policymakers need the data that can describe policy trajectories, illuminate the costs and benefits of different policy options, and track progress globally and in regions toward climate and health goals. ICCT’s roadmap program develops tools and models to meet that need by identifying plausible near-term steps toward regional, national, and international climate and health targets, including vehicle fuel efficiency and greenhouse gas regulations, vehicle air pollutant emissions standards, fleet renewal and other in-use vehicle programs, low-sulfur and low-carbon fuels, fiscal and non-fiscal incentives for electric-drive vehicles, and policies that encourage shifts to cleaner modes of transport and reduce the need for travel.
