The Cycle Competence sponsoring member klimaaktiv mobil is an initiative by the ministry for quality of life in Austria (BMLFUW) for climate-friendly mobility and to promote environmental-friendly vehicles as well as electronic mobility. With klimaaktiv mobil the BMLFUW is making an important contribution to reducing CO2 emissions, helps the economy and creates “green jobs”.
With the masterplan cycling 2006 and the following focus on implementing cycle traffic, the BMLFUW kick-started a new cycle traffic promotion initiative in Austria. With the klimaaktiv mobil consulting and promotion programmes, everyday cycling is supported and soft mobility in tourism is expanded.
Via increased international co-operations for example in the Transport, Health and Environment Pan-European Programme (THE PEP) the BMLFUW is also stepping up promotion of cycle traffic on an international level.
