The transport sector is comprised of a diverse set of activities connected by their common purpose: To move people and goods from one place to another. The sector encompasses such varied activities as walking to the corner store to pick up some milk, driving a car to a theatre, and flying fresh mangoes halfway around the world for consumption by residents of northern countries in winter. While all of the sub-sectors within the transport sector share a common purpose, they do not necessarily share greenhouse gas emissions characteristics. Hence, greenhouse gas emissions reduction solutions for different kinds of transport can be quite varied. There are five physical elements of the transport sector that can be changed to reduce emissions: Vehicle efficiency, greenhouse gas intensity of the fuel used, level of transport activity, mode of transport chosen, and amount of capacity used.
