Sustainability Programme

While decarbonisation represents a main concern for the European Union, the road infrastructure sector has undertaken significant efforts to promote greener practices which could decrease energy consumption, reduce GHG emissions and natural resources consumption during the lifetime of the road.

Sustainability is not only limited to the environmental performance during road construction and maintenance operations but also broadens to the social, economic and technical dimensions.

The Sustainability Programme of the ERF is devoted to research, deploy and monitor initiatives from the road sector to minimise the environmental impact while promoting innovation and decarbonisation during the entire lifetime of the infrastructure (design, construction, operation and end-of-life).
