The transport sector currently accounts for more than 20% of energy-related carbon dioxide emissions and with seven billion people projected to be living in urban areas by 2050, this is a sector that needs to radically transform.
Our CEO, Marie Lam-Frendo, was recently interviewed by CNBC for the latest episode in its 'Greenprint for a Sustainable Future’ series. Focused on the decarbonisation of the transport sector, this episode discusses how an electric mobility revolution and smart, sustainable infrastructure can help us reach net zero.
Marie and other industry experts explore how scaling up electric vehicles (EVs) is the most obvious solution to address this, given these technologies have already been developed. However, there are still barriers to implementing electric mobility, which we need to recognise and address. These include:
Implementing net zero solutions, like EVs, and InfraTech at scale has the potential to transform the transport sector, but it requires a global coordinated effort. The GI Hub is committed to advancing this through our work for the G20 and with our partners.
Watch the fill episode below and thank you Schneider Electric and CNBC for inviting Marie to be part of this important series.
