One of the challenges of the developed societies is to foster low carbon mobility models, looking at social equity and fair distribution of wealth criteria. It is, in short, the challenge of sustainability. For this reason, sustainable mobility means ensuring that our transport systems respond to economic, social and environmental needs, minimizing their negative repercussions (Government of Spain, 2010). In 2017, the transport sector contribution to EU-28 greenhouse gas emissions was 28.5 % of total. Emissions from transport in 2016 were 26 % above 1990 levels despite a decline between 2008 and 2013 (EEA, 2018a). Emissions need to fall by around two thirds by 2050, compared with 1990 levels, in order to meet the long-term 60 % greenhouse gas emission reduction target as set out in the 2011 Transport White Paper (EC, 2011). Achieving the 2030 targets will require new and expanded policies and approaches to energy efficiency in the Member States that can keep their energy consumption in check (EEA, 2018b).
