About the Activity
The transport sector contributes over 20% of global CO2 emissions, with car-related road travel accounting for over three-quarters. Environmental concerns and political pressure to define ESG-related regulatory goals necessitate financial markets to consider reporting standards reflecting business practices and cross-sector sustainability performance. Compliance with sustainability regulations requires concrete measures and consumer behavior change.
Reducing environmental footprints alone is insufficient; a holistic SDG-based view is crucial. Green campaigns and ad-hoc initiatives are inadequate; systemic change is necessary. Mobility companies face stringent global ESG/SDG/CSR regulations impacting business models. Standardized criteria and cyber-physical testbeds are essential for assessing interactions and generating data for impact reports.
Transformative change in mobility involves more than technology substitution; ownership models, energy efficiency, and social transformation must be considered. New modes of transportation and social considerations are vital for sustainability without sacrificing economic needs. Pilot projects for well-defined use cases, embedded in suitable testbeds, can validate transformational change options, and inform the development of an Impact Assessment Framework for Sustainable Mobility Systems.
Without an integrated assessment framework, the transport sector risks siloed activities and missing overall targets. The Impact Assessment Framework for Sustainable Mobility Systems aims to fill this gap, providing a consistent approach to assess sustainability initiatives’ impact on SDG/ESG parameters, built step-by-step based on use cases and informed by reliable data from cyber-physical testbeds.
