“After more than two years of work, we have succeeded in producing over 130 concrete measures that could contribute to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and support the development of transport corridors in Europe. These measures include proposed actions to different individual stakeholders, but also sustainable solutions for the future. The results have been compiled in a web portal and development plan that can be used by all those who work in the fields of transport and logistics in Europe,” says Sofie Vennersten, Closer Programme Manager at CLOSER, Lindholmen Science Park.
The SWIFTLY Green project began in late 2013 with the task of creating conditions for sustainable transport and green logistical solutions in nine strategically identified transport corridors in Europe. The project bases its work on the corridor between Helsinki in Finland and Valletta in Malta, which has been named the Scandinavian-Mediterranean Corridor.
“We hope that the project’s results will represent a valuable tool for European coordinators in their efforts to enhance sustainability in the European transport system,” explains Sofie Vennersten.
The Green Corridor Portal contains web-based tools which support decision-makers by proposals for future measures that will have an impact on the sustainability of transport and related emissions. The tools offer the chance to measure emissions data, assess potential transport options, and search relevant measures via a search engine. The Green Corridor Portal
The Green Corridor Development Plan is a document that promotes ideas and provides concrete recommendations and examples of good solutions for European transport corridor coordinators.
