The decarbonization of the global road transportation sector can lead to a global reduction of emissions by no less than 12%. Mobycon recognizes the impact of this industry on the trajectory of climate change and has joined the Transportation Decarbonisation Alliance (TDA) to be part of the solution. The TDA is a unique collaboration between countries, cities, regions, and companies to accelerate the worldwide transformation of the transport sector towards a net-zero emission mobility system by 2050.

Mobycon’s role focuses on contributing global best practices in active mobility, bringing together experts, and sharing knowledge on what works and what doesn’t work when it comes to sustainable urban mobility. This includes working together with TDA to write a call to action, calling on the participants of COP27 to invest more in capacity building for walking and cycling. This call to action is already supported by the Dutch Ministry for Transport, the World Resource Institute, UN Environment Programme, POLIS, and the Dutch Cycling Embassy.

By attending COP27, Mobycon aimed to find more cities and organisations that can benefit from a global capacity-building programme and to find funding partners that can make this initiative a reality.
