Transport sector pollution rises 80%

The transport sector is producing almost 80% more greenhouse gases now than in 1990, according to calculations by the national statistics office CBS.

The increase is due to the growth in the international transport sector and private travel, the CBS said.
In particular, greenhouse gas emissions by the airline industry have more than doubled.
Industry accounts for 82% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the Netherlands.
