Mobility and air quality

Currently, motorised transport is the main cause of emissions in Barcelona and represents 22.6% of the city’s overall energy consumption.

The only truly effective way is to reduce the number of vehicles that enter, leave and travel through the city while ensuring that these cars pollute as little as possible. We need to promote safer, fairer, more sustainable and more efficient mobility that enables the general public to carry on as usual while reducing their ecological footprint.

Barcelona is committed to reducing private transport and its associated CO2 emissions by 21%, and to increasing alternatives such as travelling on foot (by 10%), by bike (67%) and by public transport (3.5%)
