TomTom Traffic Index Webinar: A closer look at traffic and traffic-induced emissions in 2021

On February 21, TomTom held a webinar on the 2022 Traffic Index with Product Marketing Manager Jonathan Americo, Software Engineer Anna Nowak, and Research Manager Gunnar Berghäuser. This year’s Traffic Index delves into the state of traffic and congestion in the past year, and chronicles how urban movement trends have evolved. For the first time ever, it also documents the environmental cost of these changes through an analysis of traffic-induced emissions in 2021 and provides actionable insights.

In this webinar, we took a deep dive into the methodology behind the TomTom Traffic Index, featuring exclusive emissions data, including what the past year meant for traffic and congestion and how TomTom data on traffic and traffic-induced emissions can help individuals, businesses and governments make decisions that safeguard the future of mobility.
