The consequence has been an inevitable increase in greenhouse gas emissions. If nothing is done to make transportation more sustainable, emissions could rise by 60%. The two main drivers of the emissions increase are road freight and the flow of people between cities and their outskirts. Efforts to improve energy efficiency must therefore focus on these issues. There are two ways to reduce emissions: 1) by developing innovative fuel and engine technologies; and 2) by motivating people to change their behavior with the help of digital data and mobile applications that transform everyday life.
