Working together for sustainable road transport

Europe can significantly reduce CO2 emissions from the transport sector – here and now, and in the future.

The Conference on sustainable transport was attended by political decision-makers, interest organisations and the media.

YETD raises driver status – survey

Eight out of ten drivers in Scania’s Young European Driver (YETD) competitions believe that the competitions will help to raise the status of the driver profession. They also think that YETD can help in changing driver behaviour when it comes to road safety and fuel efficiency. These are some of the findings from the 2012 YETD survey.
