Literature review on employment impacts of GHG reduction policies for transport

Recently a large number of studies have been published that claim that accelerated uptake of electrical vehicles (EVs) and fuel efficient cars in the market for automotive transport may have positive employment benefits.

A literature review on this issue has been undertaken by CE Delft, to investigate if it is possible, from this literature, to determine whether a large-scale switch to advanced powertrains would yield positive employment benefits.

The key conclusion from the study is that ’employment benefits are likely’ to result from CO2 regulations.
