Leben ist Bewegung

In the future, increases in motorization and traffic capacity will no longer be synonymous with mobility. In particular, inhabitants in rural areas need to consider that short distance public transportation (ÖPNV) will be strongly reduced. The state now anticipates the problem of guaranteeing the public’s general interest in the principle of equal living conditions.

Subsidies, Taxes and Charges in European Transport

August 2005 to December 2005
The huge variety of subsidies, taxes and charges in the transport sector make it very difficult to assess whether all modes of transport are indeed priced according to the external effects they impose on others. In order to ensure fair competition and a level playing field for different modes of transport, transport prices need to reflect the true costs of transport. To better understand this issue, the EEA has commissioned Ecologic and the Chair for Transport Ecology at the TU Dresden to provide an overview of subsidies, taxes and charges in the European transport sector.

Ecologic, in partnership with the Berlin Institute, has developed the report “Contributions to Generational Accounting to Assess Sustainability”, which examined these and other questions concerning demographic evolution within the context of sustainability.

The project concentrated on analysing the intersection of demographicRead more

Legal Implementation of User Charges for Global Environmental Goods

November 2004 to July 2005
International airspace and the high seas are global environmental goods with traditionally unrestricted access.

This project assessed the legal conditions for the application of such charges in international, European Community and domestic law. A preliminary summary of the legal survey is now available in the internet. A strategy paper on a air ticket tax is also available for download. Read more
