Abstract [en]

The passenger transport sector is responsible for a high share of the CO2-equivalent emissions in the Netherlands. Significant reductions in emissions are needed to stay under the two degrees warming as aimed for in the Paris agreement. Unintended feedback effects often arise from policy interventions in complex systems such as the passenger transport system. Especially when multiple policies are applied there is a need to understand all the dynamics within the system, to be able to assess whether policies will reach the desired effect. This study first analyses the Dutch passenger transport system and its emissions using relevant literature and publicly available data. The analysis was used in the creation of a causal loop diagram which has been used to assess the systemic effects of emission reducing policies. The results of this study indicate that effective policy making should focus on reducing emissions from car use,by combining policies that aim to reduce the total kilometres driven by cars and policies that aim to reduce the emission intensity (g/km) of cars. Both policy types are needed to transition passenger transport into a sustainable sector.
