How the transport sector can best exit this crisis while staying on track by delivering the much-needed carbon savings to the sector.

About this Event

The Global COVID-19 outbreak has confronted Europe with an unprecedented crisis by both scale, duration, impact on people lives and seriously impacting economic activity, the transport sector is , one of the most seriously affected industries.

Shortly before the COVID-19 outbreak, the European Commission launched its European Green Deal, a new policy initiative meant to focus minds and underline the need to transform Europe Economy and set it on a sustainable path, with a goal of becoming the first carbon neutral continent by 2050. Just before the lockdown, Europe has also seen record EV sales and huge investments going into electromobility such as charging and batteries. With the large EU recovery package now on the agenda, the key question is how it can be used to continue the pre-COVID momentum and accelerate the transition to zero emissions mobility.

The Platform for Electro-mobility representing >35 industrial, urban and environmental stakeholders from across Europe wholeheartedly embrace this objective. Given the new economic context the platform would like to convene around an event addressing the question, how the transport sector can best exit this crisis and at the same time deliver on the much needed carbon savings for our sector.
