A Policy Path to Achieving Europe’s Green Digital Revolution with Sustainable, Smart and Seamless Mobility
Kim Watts · Justin Klaparda
The European Union (EU) has set ambitious—and essential—goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Specifically, the EU aims to reduce transport sector emissions by 90% by 2050.
ReMo’s white paper, A Policy Path to Achieving Europe’s Green Digital Revolution with Sustainable, Smart and Seamless Mobility, shows how the EU can take bold action in three key policy areas to—as the Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy—”shift the existing paradigm of incremental change to fundamental transformation” and achieve these important environmental goals:
- Develop a new Mobility as a Service (MaaS) Directive that comprehensively incentivizes the availability and uptake of zero-emission multimodal digital mobility services and sets a minimum European standard for digitized, integrated, and sustainable mobility services that people want to use.
- Mandate regulatory sandboxing and knowledge capture to test emerging mobility technologies in controlled pilots and measure and share learnings broadly across EU member states; and
- Support open and interoperable, industry-led neutral data standards, as part of the forthcoming European Mobility and Energy Data Spaces.
This white paper explores in depth how these actions can enable the private and public sectors to unlock the full potential of digital transformation and catalyze a green transition to a connected, cooperative, and autonomous mobility (CCAM) transportation network.
