      Dear Colleagues,

      Have you heard about OECD EST Guidelines?
      OECD International Conference on Environmentally Sustainable Transport
      (EST) was held during 4-6 October 2000, Vienna. Guidelines for EST were
      presented and endorsed at the conference.
      The guidelines state:

      1. Total emissions of CO2 from transport should not exceed 20% of such
      emissions in 1990.
      2. Total emissions of NOx from transport should not exceed 10% of such
      emissions in 1990.
      3. Total emissions of transport-related VOCs should not exceed 10% of
      such emissions in 1990 (less for extremely toxic VOCs).
      4. Entail a reduction of 55% to 99% of fine particulate(PM10) emissions
      from transport.
      5. Entail a reduction of transport noise to no more than a maximum of
      55dB(A) during the day and 45dB(A) at night and outdoors.
      6. Compared to 1990 levels, transport activity will likely entail a
      smaller proportion of land devoted o transport infrastructure.
      These criteria and targets can be achieved by 2030.

      It seems that these criteria automatically result in non-motorized
      transportation mode. Do you hear how transport policy of each country
      would incorporate these guidelines?
