Why 

we do it

Sustainable mobility has benefits at the local and global level

Sustainable mobility for people and goods is an integral lever for every country’s overall economic, environmental and social development : It is inclusive, providing access to opportunities for all groups of the society. It is efficient, minimizing the use of resources and carbon emissions. It strengthens safety, health, environmental and climate protection.

We believe sustainable mobility for everybody is possible.

Sustainable mobility holds particular potential for low- and middle- income countries

For low- and middle-income countries, sustainable mobility holds great potential to leverage synergies of economic and social development. With a young sector and a low motorization rate, these countries can still avoid costly externalities and locking-in of unsustainable investments and practices. It is now the time to make future-proof investments and to channel them to the most sustainable mobility solutions.

We accompany emerging countries in their transition towards sustainable mobility.

Sustainable mobility needs a holistic approach

Mobility of people and goods is a highly cross-cutting issue. It needs to bring together the different modes : non-motorized and motorized, shared and individual, on the ground, on water, and in the air. It implies the mobilization of different actors : public, private, research and civil society; of different sectors : transport, energy, industry, and cities; and from different levels of governance : national, regional and cities.

We foster the collaboration of different modes, sectors, and levels.

Sustainable mobility needs a long-term vision and immediate action

Positive change requires a bold long-term vision of a better future. Such a vision can then provide a stable guideline for decision-making and the allocation of public and private investments and international funding. Success stories on the ground are essential to enhance ambition and to increase support. Building a vision and translating it into tangible and immediate action need to go hand in hand.

We facilitate vision and action towards sustainable mobility.

Sustainable mobility is primarily a governance challenge

Most interventions in the transport sector  today focus on substituting elements of ‘old’ technology with ‘new’, more sustainable technology. Certainly,  technology plays an important role. But sustainable mobility is, primarily, a governance challenge : building consensus and aligning frameworks, resources, stakeholders, and technology is decision-makers’ biggest challenge.

We support decision-makers in advancing transport governance.

Sustainable mobility requires an informed, and aligned community of stakeholders

In order to advance sustainable mobility, a large number of different actors must come together a shared vision and a stable consensus of how their mobility system should look like. Sharing information and open debate creates mutual understanding and a basis for collaboration towards a supportive framework and joint action.

We enable and connect communities of stakeholders.
