Session 1 – Personal mobility and mass transit
Until recently UN climate negotiations have neglected transport relative to other sectors despite its accounting for 16% of global GHG emissions. Yet millions of us move within and between cities and countries every single day and as global trade and travel swells to meet demands of a growing consumer population, a business-as-usual trajectory in the transport sector would see emissions rocket further.
Fortunately, the thinking is done. The vision is there. We know how we should be designing our transport systems to support decarbonisation efforts and encourage sustainable travel behaviours whilst protecting economic growth, social cohesion and public health. Mass transit, rail, public transportation, electric vehicles and new forms of micro-mobility will all play a role and companies must continue to innovate to drive down the carbon intensity of entire value chains. The challenges are now of collaboration, implementation, scale and delivery.
In this first session we bring together transport sector leaders to discuss how we build an interconnected, international and decarbonised transport system that allows for inclusive growth and total mobility for citizens and consumers.

Rebuilding a resilient transportation industry with full-system decarbonisation by 2030
- What does transportation and mobility look in an era of clean, green growth
- Coalitions and collaborations: How is the UK looking to lead in the areas of mass transit, shipping, aviation and urban freight
- What does policy need from industry and finance to hit a net zero transportation sector by 2030?
Rt Honorable Grant Shapps, Secretary of State for Transport, UK Government
Interconnected multi-modal transport solutions for a global decarbonised economy
- How can the public and private sector collaborate to adopt and implement new technologies to drive mass mobility decarbonisation?
- What’s needed to deliver an interconnected, international decarbonised transport system that allows for inclusive economic growth?
- How can city leaders maximise positive outcomes from connecting new mobility models and technologies within exist transport systems?

Convenience is King: Scaling a reliable, smart and accessible EV charging network to drive adoption from businesses and EV drivers
- What have been the critical success factors in shifting the global EV market from early adoption phase to mass uptake?
- How is EVBox continuing to innovate and address the needs of businesses to build their charging network?
- What is the role of technology in driving adoption for consumers? Is the hardware more important at the moment or is software the leading element that makes a difference?
- Collaboration for competition, how important is cross-sectoral collaboration to ensure EV ownership is easy, streamlined and competes with polluting but convenient alternative transport modes?
