edie's latest COP26 Primer report focuses on clean transport
As part of the brand-new Countdown to COP26 Festival of digital content and events, edie has this week launched its latest "Primer Report" which provides need-to-know insights into the key themes of this year's crucial climate talks. Up next: Clean Transport.
edie’s COP26 Primer Reports are about seizing the green opportunity. Produced in the run-up to the official talks, this mini-series of reports are based on the five key themes of COP26: Clean Energy, Clean Transport, Climate Resilience, Nature-Based Solutions, and Climate Finance.
This report, supported by O2, examines how crucial clean transport is in delivering the net-zero transition and responding to the climate crisis. It also explores the role that COP26 will have in incentivising the shift to zero-emission modes of transport and how that will impact markets and communities moving forward.
From the enablers and accelerators to the global transport transformation, to the political challenges and consequences of failing to take a holistic approach to charging and infrastructure for shipping and aviation, this report acts as a timely state-of-play for global efforts to deliver a green recovery and kickstart the net-zero trajectory.
