Transport is the fastest-growing contributor to climate change, currently accounting for 23% of energy-related CO2 emissions. Electro-mobility offers a major solution to this problem, as well as delivering important co-benefits such as curbing transport-related air and noise pollution. Through their investment decisions as well as their influence on staff, customers and supply chains, companies can play a major role in driving EV uptake – a potential that has not yet been fully leveraged.
EV100 will leverage corporate leadership as a crucial catalyst for building market demand for electric vehicles and to establish electro-mobility as a mainstream transport solution. It will do so by providing a global platform for companies to publicly commit to EV uptake across their influence areas, reduce investment cost through best practice sharing, and engage in dialogue with governments and other related stakeholders to collaboratively address the remaining barriers.
