Idea

The initiative of partnership for e-mobility, one of the three pillar areas of the Polish COP24 Presidency, was reflected in the declaration “Driving Change Together – Katowice Partnership for e-Mobility”, successfully adopted by the vast part of the global community in Katowice. However, it needs further steps to be taken in order to bring true effects in our common efforts to achieve global climate strategy objectives.

The Global e-Mobility Forum will be devoted to presentation of practices which have created opportunities to develop e-mobility programs on various markets. The engagement in discussion of high level partners representing governments, regions and cities, international organizations and business circles will contribute to transformation of transportation sector in desired direction and is aimed at sorting out the following issues: the most effective strategies for development of e-mobility, easy access to financial measures and possibilities to generate new resources and communication with the citizens about benefits and challenges from upcoming revolution in transport.

Agenda

Declaration

driving change together

The challenges of reducing emissions and pollution cover all sectors of the economy, including transport. The transport sector is responsible for 14% of global greenhouse gas emissions. In the perspective of rapid urbanization of many countries of the world and progressive globalization, manifested by the increase in the volume of freight transport, as well as the mobility of people, this will result in an increase in the demand for transport services. The challenge of transport emissions is proving increasingly important. This trend puts the emphasis on technological and organisational change, steering the world towards electromobility and zero-emission transport.

Maintaining the current rate of development, including the development of urban agglomerations and megacities, while keeping the current transport model and the dominant types of propulsion and energy sources, is incompatible with the promotion of a sustainable transport model and the reduction of dependence on fossil fuels.

With this in mind, the Polish Presidency of COP24 proposed to make electromobility one of the leading topics of the Conference of the Parties. The tool to achieve this goal is the Driving Change Together – Katowice Partnership for Electromobility, prepared by Poland and the United Kingdom. It is an impetus to ensure that all people can live in clean, citizen and environmentally friendly cities by making efforts to promote electromobility and clean transport. It can stimulate legal, economic, social and cultural conditions for the development of electromobility, sustainable patterns and innovation in transport, with the ultimate effect of reducing emissions in this sector and improving the health of the planet’s population. Agreement partners can be states, regions and cities, as well as NGOs.

The Polish Presidency expresses the hope that the cooperation of all parties at global level will help to accelerate the electromobility revolution, creating one of the concrete dimensions of implementation of the Paris Agreement and fulfilment of the Global Climate Action objectives. Therefore, we encourage all interested parties to read the content of the declaration, as well as to become a signatory to it. The helm of the future is in our hands!
