Transport accounts for 23% of global CO2 emissions. It is imperative that we adopt cleaner forms of transport. With this project WBCSD aims to enable an ecosystem that accelerates deployment of electric vehicles by demonstrating economically viable and scalable business cases.
By 2030 there will be a 41% increase in motorised mobility. Carbon dioxide emissions are set to increase 60% by 2050 and 80% of cities are struggling to maintain air quality standards. Companies are facing stricter regulations regarding their emissions and cities are limiting access to vehicles during peak times as well as are introducing low emission zones.
Adopting Emobility solutions provide emission reduction and revenue opportunities to commercial customers. Many solutions relating to Emobility require a collaborative approach. We will establish partnerships to test, validate, and scale electrification. Companies will gain greater visibility across the electric vehicle (EV) value chain and understand how to maximise the benefits offered by electric mobility.
We are developing an engagement platform and together identifying key corporate EV use cases. For these cases we are developing a “how-to-guide” which will support companies in their journey of adopting electric vehicles. We will use pilot projects to demonstrate the replicability and scalability of the identified EV use cases.
