Mobility is an issue that affects everyone. In general terms, mobility describes the ways in which we can and want to move around. The issue of transportation is therefore part of mobility. On foot, by bicycle, by car, or by public transport: there are numerous ways in which you can cover your daily routes or longer distances.
Sustainable mobility, therefore, has several objectives; on the one hand, it is about the most efficient use of means of transport. This applies above all to individual motorized transport, i.e. travel by car. The reduction of classic car traffic is one of the pillars of sustainable mobility: 80% of passenger traffic falls on motorized individual traffic.
On the other hand, as part of the concept, ways are being sought to reduce emissions and achieve lower resource consumption. In other words, new ways are being sought to ensure our mobility and at the same time cause less or no damage to the environment.
Why is sustainable mobility important?
A sustainable and well-functioning structure for mobility is not only elementary for saving valuable resources and avoiding environmental pollution through exhaust fumes.
Especially in times of housing shortages and high rents in metropolitan areas, it is important that people can get from A to B easily and in an environmentally friendly way, so that places to live outside large cities also become attractive. This increases the quality of life, providing us with an overall more relaxed coexistence. In addition, not only individual traffic should be ensured, but also the transport of goods, preferably in the most sustainable way possible.
Sustainable mobility in everyday life
Of course, you don’t need to buy an electric or hydrogen car immediately if you want to move more sustainably in everyday life. Even small changes can have a big impact on your own life cycle assessment. If you can’t get to work by bike or public transportation, get creative: for example, carpool with colleagues who live near you or along the way.
Use your bike to go shopping, or ask your neighbors if you can bring them something from the supermarket. Every meter not traveled by car is a step towards sustainable mobility.
