Design, construction and conservation of roads for the minimization of the environmental footprint

José Luis PEÑA
Managing Director of the Spanish Technological Road Platform

ABSTRACT

Mobility is a key element as a generator of wealth and well-being. Road mobility is the basis of current transport and all citizens value its use very positively. However, it should also be remembered that the road transport sector is one of the largest contributors to environmental impacts: globally due to greenhouse gas emissions and urban levels due to NOx emissions, suspended particles, noise and other polluting gases.

How to contribute to the reduction of environmental impacts is the subject of this publication, addressing various strategies that affect vehicles, the construction of infrastructures and the exploitation of them.

The reduction of environmental impacts requires, first of all, knowing and quantifying them. This quantification process allows us to address the global challenges that countries are agreeing to to curb climate change. However, there is a complementary vision of the environmental impact assessment procedures that allows organizations to delve into the eco-design of their products and services, which can make them more competitive.
