The government aims to reduce CO2 emissions from work-related personal mobility (both business travel and commuting). This study for the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management (Ministerie voor Infrastructuur en Waterstaat, I&W) provides insight into the climate impact of work-related personal mobility of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and the potential to reduce these emissions.
The study answers the following research questions:
According to this study, work-related personal mobility emissions from SMEs are currently 2.7 Mton CO2-eq. As a result of existing policies, these emissions are projected to be 2.1 Mton CO2-eq. by 2030. Through a broad package of measures, SME employers can potentially achieve reductions of 0.5 to 1.1 Mton of CO2-eq. In this study, we divided SMEs into nine target groups and analysed the potential effects of sustainable mobility policies for each target group.
