A joint commitment to limit direct or indirect CO2 emissions produced by urban public transport.
'Ticket to Kyoto' is a 4-year partnership project (2010-2014) bringing together 5 European Railway Undertakings: STIB in Brussels, RET in Rotterdam, MoBiel in Bielefeld, TfGM in Manchester and RATP in Paris.
'Ticket to Kyoto' aims at sharing, innovating, and experimenting new solutions to limit direct or indirect CO2 emissions produced by urban public transport systems. The ultimate goal is to contribute by 2020 to the European objectives set in the Kyoto Protocole.
The scope for RATP is limited to energy savings and therefore CO2 savings that can be obtained from the infrastructure and through a change in attitude and behaviour of the employees of the various partners' public transport networks (driving; maintenance; facility layout, etc.).
RATP is expecting four types of results from this initiative:
- An Action Plan shared by all Partners and directly implementable, to lower CO2 emissions produced by transport infrastructures by 2020;
- Good practices easily applicable on the short term and producing quick wins;
- Capital investment lines for heat recovery technology to be set up;
Studies launched to bolster the Action Plan that will feed into RATP’s Sustainable Development Strategy on the mean term.
