It is time to update our transport system to one that is fit for the 21st century. Please welcome, The Guide to Sustainable Transport 2014.
The pace at which transport has evolved since the invention of the wheel is remarkable.
The introduction of Henry Ford’s mass production model for car manufacturing in 1908 set the ball rolling on a way of getting from A to B that was available to almost everyone, at speeds unimagined by previous generations.
Over a century later, and the world seems a much smaller place. But at what cost?
The environmental and social effects of mass transportation were unexpected. Air pollution, increased obesity, urban sprawl and deaths from road, sea and air transport are all depressing negative side-effects of the 21st century’s transport system. But things don’t have to be this way.
In The Guide to Sustainable Transport, we outline some of the ways in which cars, trains, ships and planes are striving to become more efficient and less damaging to the planet.
We talk to transport firms, campaign groups, thought leaders and investors whose collective insight is helping create a new age of sustainable transport.
And we look at the bigger picture; why it really matters that transport becomes less of an ecological burden and more of a societal benefit – just as it was when Ford broke ground 106 years ago.
