1 COMMERCE Creating Optimal Mobility Measures to Enable Reduced Commuter Emissions ECOMM 2008 Francesca Cignola London European Partnership for Transport

2 Commuter Emissions, Congestion and CO 2 Work-related commuter emissions contribute significantly to overall CO 2 emissions in the transport sector Stress, ill health and loss of productivity are directly connected with congestion Congestion is costing the UK and France respectively 1.5% and 1.3% of their GDP every year Workplace Travel Planning is an approach to change commuting and travel behaviour and raise awareness on climate change

3 The COMMERCE project The COMMERCE project is funded under the Intelligent Energy Europe STEER programme and will run from 2007 to 2010 Its main objective is to increase the number and improve the quality of Mobility Plans that are developed by public and private organisations across Europe It will do so by facilitating the exchange of experiences and expertise between two leader cities (London and Paris) and four learner cities (Bucharest, Budapest, Kaunas and Plovdiv)

4 COMMERCE Partners LEPT, London CRIF, Paris Studio Metropolitana, Budapest RATB, BucarestCCIB, Bucarest Kaunas Municipality, Kaunas Plovdiv Municipality, Plovdiv EPOMM

5 Expected Results AT THE CITY LEVEL Mobility Plan Networks developed in the four learner cities and new Mobility Plans established with local businesses Skills developed through exchange of experience and mentoring between leader and learner cities AT THE EUROPEAN LEVEL Development of a set of EU standards for Mobility Plans Establishment of a Pan European Workplace Mobility Management Award (PEWTA) Set up of a European Platform on Workplace Mobility Plans (EPOWT)
