Abstract

The paper presents a comparative analysis concerning the approaches taken by decision makers in the Welsh Government and North – East Region of Romania for the transition towards low carbon mobility, as well as the new technologies, tools and processes which support this transition. After defining the general concepts of low carbon mobility, specific strategies for improving the sustainability of a city and examples of good practices for the Regions will be provided. The results of recent research undertaken for the assessment of the environmental indicators of various supply chains and technologies which supports this transition will be presented. The Global Warming Potential expressed in terms of CO2e emissions of a cycle path have been evaluated by using a life cycle assessment (LCA) study performed with GaBi software. The results from these studies will be presented and specific recommendations concerning the use of various technologies for reducing the environmental impact of the transport system are given.
