Call for projects aimed at reducing logistics emissions across the Brussels-Capital Region remains open until the end of the working week
As part of Brussels’ Green Deal on Zero Emission Urban Logistics, the call aims to support projects that lack support and cannot see the light of day due to lack of initial funding. It is designed to stimulate collaboration within the Green Deal, and is open to existing signatories, as well as those who wish to sign on at the same time.
The purpose of the Urban Logistics Green Deal, which was launched in April of this year, is to bring together a community of pioneering organizations that want to move forward faster and further in the transition of logistics in Brussels. At the launch, figures were shared illustrating that, while accounting for only 17% of the kilometres travelled in Brussels, freight transport is responsible for 41% of NOx emissions, 30% of fine particle emissions and 29% of Brussels’ CO2 emissions from transport. Through this Green Deal, the Brussels-Capital Region wishes to support and promote the actions of companies that are pioneers in the transition to low-emission logistics.
The aim of the call for projects is to:
stimulate the Brussels-Capital Region’s Urban Logistics Green Deal
support a minimum of 3 projects aimed at reducing logistics emissions
fund selected projects to the tune of €10,000 to €300,000 per project
support selected projects during the 2024 calendar year
support selected projects with the expertise of the Mobilise research group
