The EC white paper for Transport, adopted in 2011, underlines that Urban Areas are responsible for about a quarter of CO2 emissions from transport, and 69% of road accidents occur in cities.
Europe has clear and challenging goals to ensure sustainability of transport in urban areas: halve the use of ‘conventionally-fuelled’ cars in urban transport by 2030; phase them out in cities by 2050; achieve essentially CO2-free city logistics in major urban centers by 2030.
The SOLEZ project designed and pilot tested innovative ICT based tools to help local public administrations to reduce CO2 emission in urban area and give a contribution to achieve these ambitious results!
After 3 years of successful cooperation, SOLEZ project came to an end. Our aim to increase partners’ knowledge and experience on effective LEZ implementation approaches and to enhance key stakeholders and civil society engagement in low-carbon mobility initiatives have been accomplished. If you are looking for advices on how to reduce CO2 emissions in your city with a Low Emission Zone approach, you might find it useful to have a look at our project outputs (hyperlink)

In Central Europe, increasing planning capacities of the public sector and related entities for low-carbon mobility is a key priority to help reducing air pollution, mainly in Urban Areas. Starting from this consideration, within SOLEZ project, 8 Central Europe cities have elaborated local Action Plans aiming at boosting sustainable urban mobility and at effectively exploiting Low Emission Zones concept.
8 cities with different characteristics and level of maturity in the implementation of sustainable mobility policies. However, project activities highly contributed to empower less experience partners and facilitated knowledge exchange developing...
10 partners from 7 different countries share the will to protect key city areas from traffic through the use of Low Emissions Zones and similar measures.
8 out of 10 partners represents a Functional Urban Area (FUA) which is comprised of one core city and municipalities in its hinterlands.
The project consortium includes both experienced cites in low carbon mobility, technical experts and cities that have some unique experience in low-carbon mobility or policy of Low Emission zones.
Main results, lessons learnt and achievements of SOLEZ project have been summarized in this final Project Brochure. Let's have a look at how this project contributed to improve sustainable mobility in 8 Central Europe Urban areas!
