Practical guide for transport policymakers and planners to achieve low-carbon land transport systems.
Based on wide ranging research, it shows how policies can be bundled successfully and worked into urban transport decision-making and planning strategies.
With case studies from developed and developing countries, it outlines measures for reducing emissions, tailoring these to specific circumstances. It also highlights how greenhouse gas savings are measured, as well as success factors for implementing policies and measures in complex decision-making processes.
For students of sustainable transport, professional planners and decision makers, Low-Carbon Land Transport is an invaluable reference for all those looking to help transport networks flow in a sustainable direction.

Career Management, Fourth Edition blends theory, practical recommendations, and case studies to help students develop the necessary skills to manage their own careers or to act as a human resource manager assisting others as they develop their careers. Offering a useful combination of both individual and organizational actions relevant in career management, the authors introduce students to basic concepts underlying theory and then illustrate their practical applications, either with regard to an individual's career or within firms.
This volume contains articles from leading analysts and researchers on sustainable transportation, who provide critical reflections on how automobile-related climate policies have evolved up to now in Europe and around the world, in view of the widely recognized need to substantially curb global emissions of greenhouse gases in the coming decades. Authors describe the policies which have been most effective, outline their economic and social implications, present success stories while critically reviewing less successful examples, and suggest strategies to decarbonize passenger transportation on a global scale.
Energy audits have multiple goals including reducing energy consumption, managing costs and environmental impact. Improving the energy performance of existing buildings through energy retrofit measures is a great opportunity for developing sustainability in our structures and developing a green building economy. Green Energy Audit of Buildings considers this opportunity with a new and modern interpretation of the classic methodologies.
This comprehensive guide to green energy audits integrates energy audit and LEED(r) methodologies to focus on energy and environment as strategic elements. In addition to these methodologies, Green Energy Audit of Buildings includes 45 check-list for field surveys and97 technical sheets of possible energy retrofit actions that can be applied to existing real-world cases.
Covering both the technical and economical points of view, Green Energy Audit of Buildings provides a comprehensive understanding and method for analyzing buildings and facilities in order to promote sustainability. Engineers, architects, energy assessors and mangers in charge of building maintenance will all find this a key reference as well as lecturers, students and researchers looking to develop their understanding of sustainable buildings."
