Call for papers: Special Issue of the journal Sustainability


We are calling for papers for a Special Issue of the journal Sustainability on research into collective interventions to radically reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from freight transport, in line with the political targets of COP21 to COP23. In order to meet these targets, by 2050, freight transport should have reduced its GHG emissions by 80–85%. This reduction represents a significant challenge with multiple technical, operational, and political aspects. Designing, testing, and implementation of effective interventions (managerial or technical) and appropriate policy measures need multi-disciplinary, multi-country research.

Papers should concern specific reduction measures or approaches to support a broad range of private strategies and public interventions, including a clear discussion of the expected impact on global GHG emissions.
