Climate targets: Transportation

    • 30% public transport in cities by 2020
      Transportation | Target year: 2020
    • Waterway transportation: In 2020, the CO2 emissions per unit of passenger and freight turnover was 13% by 2020 against a 2010 baseline
      Transportation | Base year target | Target year: 2020 | Base year: 2010
    • In 2020, the sharing rate of public transportation in large and medium-sized cities will reach 30% by 2020 against a 2014 baseline
      Transportation | Trajectory target | Target year: 2020 | Base year: 2014
    • In 2020, the CO2 emission per unit passenger transport volume was 5% lower than in 2010, and CO2 emissions per unit freight turnover was 13% lower than in 2010.

    • In 2020, the amount of CO2 emission from railway transportation units will be reduced by 15% compared with 2010. Rail transport. We will improve the railway transportation network, accelerate the electrification of railways, increase the proportion of electric locomotives that undertake the passenger and freight transport of railways, increase the capacity of railway transportation, and promote the energy-saving dispatch of railways. We will actively develop containerized sea-rail transport, accelerate the elimination of old locomotives, and develop energy-saving low-carbon locomotives and EMUs. Strengthen the low-carbon transformation and operation management of stations and other facilities.
