In these areas road transport is one of the leading environmental pressures concerning: . air pollutant emissions. noise; land use.

DaimlerChrysler (automobile company) signed in 2005 the Magdeburg Declaration with UNEP stating to promote sustainable mobility by supporting activities and further tap the potential of biofuels. This was further agreed upon in a MoU in February 2006. The two organizations call on producers for biofuels to take environmental and sustainability aspects into account in their cultivation processes and intend to support the development of a ‘sustainability seal’ (similar to what FSC provides for wood products) for the cultivation of biomass for biofuels. Other activities of the partnership include conducting engine tests, promoting a Jatropha project in India, organizing the biennial Magdeburg Environmental Forum (platform for experts) and the development of second-generation biofuels (DaimlerChrysler 2006).
