“El Gobierno de Colombia, desde su Plan Nacional de Desarrollo, tiene entre sus objetivos lograr la transición energética, con la descarbonización del sector transporte y la disminución de la dependencia de combustibles fósiles. Tenemos el compromiso de reducir en un 51% las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero del país hacia el 2030, alcanzar carbono neutralidad hacia el 2050 y reducir las emisiones de carbono negro en un 40% respecto a 2014. 

En ese sentido, avanzamos con la realización de proyectos en movilidad eléctrica, en el Programa de Modernización del Parque Automotor de Carga, fortalecemos el transporte de carga por tren desde y hacia el centro del país, teniendo en cuenta la intermodalidad del transporte, así como la promoción de la movilidad activa, facilitando el acceso al transporte público y reduciendo la necesidad de viajes de los ciudadanos.”


“The Government of Colombia, through its National Development Plan, has among its objectives to achieve the energy transition, with the decarbonisation of the transport sector and the reduction of dependence on fossil fuels. We are committed to reducing the country’s greenhouse gas emissions by 51% by 2030, achieving carbon neutrality by 2050 and reducing black carbon emissions by 40% compared to 2014. 

In this regard, we are moving forward with the implementation of electric mobility projects, in the Freight Vehicle Fleet Modernisation Programme, we are strengthening freight transport by train to and from the centre of the country, taking into account the intermodality of transport, as well as promoting active mobility, facilitating access to public transport and reducing the need for citizens to travel.”
