Boosting sustainable economies through greening transport


Aligning prosperity with sustainable mobility is essential to contain climate change and maintain a strong economy. This is reflected in many Covid-19 national recovery plans that aim to ensure that economic growth is combined with shifting mobility behavior and the scaling up of low-carbon technologies. The session will address the need for transformational change in the transport sector, including the urgency of significant
behavioural change. It will explore how economic growth can be rendered more sustainable by decarbonising transport and reducing other environmental externalities of transport, such as its effects on biodiversity, air and maritime quality, and health.

  • What is the current state of low-carbon transport across different countries and regions of the world?
  • What measures, including transformative policies, are required to support the green transition of transport?
  • What are effective policies to maximise the value of clean energy technology, while maintaining accessibility for users, and reducing carbon emissions?
  • How can the transition to net-zero transport address adaptation needs and broader social and well-being goals?
  • What is required to incentivise private sector capital to support the green transition (e.g. carbon pricing, regulatory certainty, public financing)?
