World Business Council for Sustainable Development

No excuse for non-sustainable transport in urban areas, says Wallstrom. More needs to be done by industry and government to ensure cleaner transport options in urban areas, said speakers at a major conference last week. The "Smart Moves for Sustainable Mobility" conference concentrated on current action that needs to be taken to reduce car use in urban areas. Several speakers pointed out that greater commitment is required from industry and governments to promote sustainable mobility. Government action was called for in the form of pollution control legislation, tax incentives, R&D funding and public education.
