Getting zero-emission vans and trucks on the road – Kick-Off Session

May 27, 2020 12:00 am

Increasing ambitious action in the decarbonization of freight is key to move the world closer to achieving the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Accelerating zero-emission freight vehicle uptake and help manufacturers better respond to market signals is paramount to that and to the ambition of a growing number of cities to fully reap the air quality and health benefits of zero-emission zones they like to establish in their city centers.

With that ambition the Transport Decarbonisation Alliance, the Climate Group/EV100 and CALSTART/Drive to Zero have initiated a series of meetings to accelerate the development of the zero-emission commercial vehicle market and in particular foster dialogue between supply and demand. Results from the whole series will be conveyed to high-level decision-makers and eventually to the COP 26 in 2021.
