One of the greatest global challenges for this and future generations is how we address climate change. Evidence for warming of the climate system is unequivocal and it is extremely likely that human activity has been the dominant cause of the observed warming since the mid- 20th century. Observations show that global average temperatures have increased by almost 1˚C since pre-industrial times. The atmosphere and ocean have warmed, the amount of snow and ice has diminished, and sea level has risen as the concentrations of greenhouse gases (GHG) have increased. The projections of future global and regional climate change indicate that continued emissions of GHGs will cause further warming and changes to the climate system.

Despite gains in fuel efficiency, emissions from the transport sector represent about a quarter of total Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions in the EU and remain higher than 1990 levels due to an increase in mobility demand.

Emissions of CO2 depend on and are estimated from the amount and type of each fuel used. Therefore it is critical to shift away from conventional fossil fuels and adopt alternative and low emission fuels like Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) and Compressed Natural Gas (CNG).
