This study highlights the economic aspects of sustainable mobility by analysing ten bundles of eco-innovations, i.e. policy instruments which positively enhance the environmental dimension of transport/mobility making the latter more sustainable. They comprise instruments of different types (e.g. regulatory, organisational) and across different modes and are described and analysed within an analytical framework which presents their economic as well as transport, environmental and market failure impact. With regard to the former qualitative evidence in principle points to an increasing awareness on the economic potential of these eco-innovations, while quantitative evidence, if available, privileges the perspective of the single user and the industry. Findings of the literature review are complemented by an online survey among practitioners, policy makers and experts.
