How can we move people and things more sustainably? The bulk of emissions in this sector come from tailpipes. By 2050, the world needs to shift from fossil fuel vehicles to a fleet of zero-emissions cars, trucks, buses, and bikes.
Global EV market penetration for passenger vehicles has surged to nearly 9 percent of total new car sales. To claim a significantly larger share of the market, EVs must overcome barriers in pricing, availability, and charging infrastructure.
Cutting 6 gigatons from transportation demands more than ramping up sales of new EVs. We must also phase out the current fleet of billions of combustion vehicles.
In aviation, airlines need to accelerate adoption of sustainable fuels and chart a path to carbon-neutral ones. For maritime transport, we must begin to shift to “zero-ready” ships powered by clean fuels.
