Climate Rating of Transport Infrastructure Projects. Exploration of a methodology for including climate impacts in project appraisal.

The European Commission announced that it aims at making climate rating be a part of the decision process for investments (EC, 2011). However, the Commission has not yet decided on a methodology for climate rating. In order to achieve this interlinking of policy objectives and to feed the Commission with further developing this issue, the European Federation forTransport & Environment (T&E), together with partners asked CE Delft to develop a methodology for climate rating, which is presented in this report.
Although the study primarily focuses on TEN-T, recommendations could also be applied to other EU funds which can, directly or indirectly, influence the decarbonisation of the European transport sector.
