Report: Procuring zero emission delivery of goods and services

Municipalities and other public authorities across Europe spend huge amounts of money on the purchase of goods, services and
works each year – according to European Commission estimates, public procurement accounts for 14% of EU GDP1. A very wide
variety of items are procured, from office supplies, to canteen catering services, from street furniture to the construction of
municipal buildings. In almost every case some form of transportation of people or products is required to deliver the contract.The BuyZET project aimed to understand the impact of this spending on transportation flows in EU urban areas, to see how procurement may be used to best support the shift to sustainable mobility.

Briefing: Access to the international market for coach and bus services

The European Union aims to ensure that road transport rules are applied effectively and without discrimination. The current rules governing the access to the international market for coach and bus services appear to have been only partly effective in promoting this mode of transport. There are still differences in rules on access to national markets, differences in openness of national markets, diverse national access arrangements and discrimination in access to terminals in some EU countries. In an attempt to address the issue, the European Commission adopted a legislative proposal on 8 November 2017 to amend the EU rules for access to the international market for coach and bus services. The proposal is part of its ‘Europe on the Move’ package, which aims to modernise European mobility and transport.
