Transport & Environment’s (T&E) vision is a zero-emission mobility system that is affordable and has minimal impacts on our health, climate and environment.

Since its creation 30 years ago, T&E has shaped some of Europe’s most important environmental laws. It got the EU to set the world’s most ambitious CO2 standards for cars and trucks, but also helped uncover the dieselgate scandal, campaigned successfully to end palm oil diesel, secured a global ban on dirt shipping fuels and the creation of the world’s biggest carbon market for aviation.

Staff in Brussels, Rome, Madrid, Berlin, Warsaw and London collaborate with 60 national member and supporter organizations in 25 countries across Europe. All together members and supporters represent more than 3.5 million people.

T&E coordinates the International Coalition for Sustainable Aviation (ICSA), which has observer status at the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and is a member of the Clean Shipping Coalition (CSC), which has observer status at the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

T&E holds a seat on the board of ECOS, and is a member of the Green 10 group of European environmental NGOs, Agora Verkehrswende, the Platform for Electromobility, the Coalition for Energy Savings, the Renewable Grids Initiative and the Electrification Alliance.
