Vision of sustainable mobility
Transport is one of the most influential sectors in pursuing the national goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and related transition to a low-carbon society.
While greenhouse gas emissions are quickly dropping in other sectors, transport still shows a trend of long-term growth. Therefore, Slovenia has to take bold actions in the field of transport to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Directive 2014/94/EU on the development of alternative fuels infrastructure is part of a legislative framework for implementing the strategy of gradual transition towards mobility with low-carbon emissions.
In order to achieve the indicative goals of the operational programme on greenhouse gases (OP GHG) and reduction goals for transport-generated air pollutants, Slovenia used an approach in formulating the strategy, which initially determines the necessary number of vehicles for individual alternative fuels.
In the future, we will have to broadly, reasonably and continually inform and raise awareness of the general public about the advantages, significance and necessity of reducing the carbon footprint of transport. Only then can users understand and accept the appropriate measures and comprehensive policy, including legislative changes, which will significantly affect personal and public mobility.
By introducing and favouring alternative fuels, with the aim of gradually transitioning to low-carbon transport, Slovenia will experience relatively large changes in the future.
At Petrol, we increasingly promote the use of alternative fuels, while facilitating a transition to alternative forms of mobility, as want to became the leading provider in the field of alternative fuels and smart mobility services in the region.
