About the Event

Wednesday, 10th of November, 10:00 – 11:15 United Kingdom Time LGMA Pavilion, SEC Centre Hall 4 Section D, COP26 Blue Zone (UN accreditation needed) Link to join virtually for attendees: https://hopin.com/events/cop26-multilevel-action-pavilion Session Description: Climate change represents a significant environmental challenge of our time. Transport has a huge role to play in the economy reaching net zero. Transport emissions have grown faster than many other sectors over the last 50 years. Demand for transport will continue to grow massively in the coming decades. As a result, CO2 emissions from transport activity will continue to increase. Cities around the world are taking action to meet the challenge of climate change and are raising the ambition towards net-zero transport. As the world’s transportation landscape changes, city, and transportation leaders must grapple with new ways to provide the most efficient, safe, and sustainable transportation experience to their communities. The scale of ambition and urgency to act quickly can improve residents’ health, advance equity, and create better places to live and travel, while simultaneously promoting clean economic growth. The side event aims to bring together ambitious plans and actions in achieving net-zero in transport, where transportation stands now with respect to climate change emergency, where it needs to go, and how to get there while bridging the gap between ambition and action. The race to decarbonize transportation is on.
