Change the way we move
Road transport accounts for 17% of global greenhouse gas emissions, which is a major factor contributing to climate change. Efforts to accelerate the deployment of low emissions and electric vehicles is crucial for reducing carbon emissions and achieving the central goal of the Paris Climate Change Agreement, which is to keep the global average temperature well below 2 degrees Celsius and as close as possible to 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels.
Commenting on the report, Paul Simpson, CEO of CDP said: “The auto sector is the poster child for the future of industry as we know it. Tech and software disrupters have forced this high-emitting industry to innovate at a pace faster than it perhaps feels comfortable with. It is promising to see traditional carmakers step up to the mark to meet global shifts in demand for electric vehicles.”
