Introduction to Sustainable Transports by Bernard Favre

By Bernard Favre

"Transport platforms need to meet the mobility wishes of individuals and commodities on all scales, from the neighborhood to the worldwide point. matters concerning the power, fumes and sound emissions produced, and concerning the security, carrier caliber, intelligence and lifecycle of the structures, and so forth. can all be incorporated in a systemic strategy. This strategy can give a contribution to the improvement of sustainable recommendations, for person vehicles Read more...

4. 4. The environment and sustainable transport From an environmental perspective, transport instantly invokes the notion of disturbance, the first of which is noise, in addition to smells, smoke and toxic gases from the exhausts of combustion vehicles. It should be noted that CO2 does not directly entail noticeable effects 26 Introduction to Sustainable Transports unlike the other listed pollutants. ), which have important echoes. However, it seems that the natural concern of explaining everything in simple terms too often gives way to slogans and labels which, due to ignorance, interest or as shortcuts, exaggerate or, on the contrary, underestimate the actual impact, depending on the period in time and on the context.

Not only does it represent an important part of emissions, which are constantly increasing, unlike other fields, but restricting these emissions is also proving to be particularly difficult. As a matter of fact, transport lends itself very poorly to alternative solutions that use energy sources other than liquid fuels. The debate on CO2 has also reached the point at which other elements are rarely mentioned. ) and even to errors in judging the actual impacts of different types of energy solutions for transport.

It has spectacular growth rates and guarantees all destinations between air hubs that are more than several hundred kilometers away. High-speed railways are currently being implanted in Western Europe and in some of the Asian countries that are more or less developed (the precursor being Japan, and then China, which now has the most important network); development is limited for reasons of economic order even though the technical performances are remarkable. Mobility within territories, as well as between territories, is therefore linked to the existence of infrastructure, the availability of which is unavoidable for developing the abilities of transport based on the movement of vehicles.
