The transport sector is one of the main sources of global GHG emissions, of which road transport emissions are greatest. The decarbonisation of road transport requires systemic changes combined with technological interventions to optimise the use of transport modes. Given the diverse options for road transport decarbonisation due to differences in technological development and commercialisation levels across geographies, interventions that lead to local development or contribute to addressing societal challenges at each locality are warranted. The decarbonisation of mobility can lead to widespread structural change and should be seen not only as a contribution to addressing the grave problem of the climate crisis, but also as an opportunity to realise a prosperous society with mobility for all.
