Transport and the European Green Capital Award

 The European Green Capital Award recognises the impact that sustainable transport can have on the overall environment of a city and has listed local transport as one of the 12 indicators for the Award, assessed by an Expert Panel.

Through the use of sustainable urban transport planning, Brussels, European Green Capital Finalist 2015, aims to reduce car traffic by 20% between 2001 and 2018 and encourage the use of public transport, cycling and walking in the city. This will improve the air quality of the city among other measures.
