Shared mobility & CO2 emissions reduction


Shared mobility has significantly evolved and is now seen as an opportunity to reduce traffic congestion as well as CO2 emissions. So far, governments’ actions to actively encourage shared mobility remain limited. This might be due to the relative novelty of the concept.

Building on a CERRE workshop, Research Fellow Georgina Santos has recently authored an article published in the peer-reviewed journal Sustainability, presenting and identifying Shared Mobility models. This scientific article outlines the most promising ways to reduce CO2 emissions thanks to shared mobility as well as potential incentives to encourage it.

The original CERRE Expert Workshop addressed the challenges of sustainable urban mobility. It discussed which regulatory changes service providers wish to see, and why. It also addressed the objectives of decision-makers and transport planners, as well as regulatory options to achieve these objectives. Presentations can be accessed here.
