DN Opinion. We must stop increasing vehicle driving to the airport

Elias van Tijn lifts in his letter to the editor on the DN View, a very important question. The airport is of central importance for Stockholm to be able to serve as a global innovation center.

For that Stockholm should be a city in the forefront of all efforts to reduce emissions are important. This applies not least to how we travel to our largest airport.

the environmental Permit for stockholm Arlanda airport include, inter alia, that the airport shall draw up an action plan for the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions from ground transportation. It is good because we see the traffic to Arlanda, as the big miljöboven what comes marktransporterna and that increased mass transit would reduce emissions.

Gardermoen, it shows that the proportion of collective travel there has increased from about 60 percent in 2009 to approximately 72% in 2017. The corresponding figures for stockholm Arlanda shows that the collective travel has declined from 49% in 2009 to 46 percent in 2017.

A survey we did 2016, showed that 33 per cent of those travelling to and from the airport will get pushed and that 56 percent would prefer to be driven. The calculations we made then showed that a skjutsresa to the airport emits more than five times as much carbon dioxide as the bus.

Where we see a big environmental challenge. If Elias van Tijn wants to analyze the emissions at the airport, it would be essential to also take by car and parking.

has long experience from working with our environmental impact. We started with the biofuel for more than ten years ago and today is 100 percent of the fuel is zero carbon biofuel.

72 per cent of our buses are Euro 6-rated engines will have the most modern exhaust emission control. We are also working with smart driving for our drivers linked to a personal incentive scheme to further bring down the consumption.

We are long-standing environmental certification (ISO 14001). We will this year roll out our first elbuss of the shuttle buses and where we see that the technology is evolving rapidly.

per passenger, but not yet in a life cycle perspective. Emissions per passenger at the airport is 0.23 kg CO2. We are convinced that a life cycle analysis would show that the biltransporterna is the worst for our climate.

To put an increased focus on mass transit, we believe, would be the most effective mind the environmental gain in the short term. Why not set a goal of an 80% share of mass transit to the airport? We ought to be able to be better than in Gardermoen?
