    Nanotechnology and Tyres - Greening Industry and Transport

    New nanomaterials offer promising avenues for future innovation, which can contribute towards the sustainability and resource efficiency of the tyre industry. Yet uncertainty over environmental health and safety (EHS) risks appears to be a main and continuous concern for the development of new nanomaterials in tyre production, even for those closest to market. Lack of sector-specific guidance represents a major gap.

    Green Growth Indicators 2014

    The OECD Green Growth Strategy supports countries in fostering economic growth and development while ensuring that natural assets continue to provide the resources and environmental services on which well-being relies. Policies that promote green growth need to be founded on a good understanding of the determinants of green growth and need to be supported with appropriate indicators to monitor progress and gauge results.

    This book updates the 2011 Towards Green Growth: Monitoring progress. It presents the OECD framework for monitoring progress towards green growth and a selection of updated indicators that illustrate the progress that OECD countries have made since the 1990s.

    Perspectives des transports FIT 2013 - Financer les transports

    Les Perspectives des transports du FIT présentent une analyse des scénarios possibles à long terme ainsi que des statistiques sur les tendances récemment observées dans le domaine des transports et de leur infrastructure. On y recense les déterminants des évolutions passées et ceux des tendances envisageables pour l’avenir, et étudie leur intérêt pour l’élaboration des politiques. De même, on expose les facteurs susceptibles de tirer à la baisse ou à la hausse l’offre et la demande de services de transport et analyse leur incidence potentielle.

    La présente édition porte sur les scénarios d’évolution des volumes de transport à l’échelle mondiale à l’horizon 2050. L’analyse présentée met en évidence l’incidence qu’aurait chacun de ces scénarios sur la croissance mondiale des flux de fret et de voyageurs, ainsi que les conséquences que l’urbanisation rapide observée hors de la zone OCDE devrait avoir sur l’ensemble des volumes de transport et des émissions de CO2. Elle est complétée par une étude de cas sur les transports urbains en Amérique latine, qui passe en revue les caractéristiques du développement urbain et leurs effets à long terme sur la mobilité urbaine, la répartition modale et les émissions de CO2 dans le monde en développement.
