Investing in cleaner transport*
Transportation currently accounts for 15% of global greenhouse gas emissions. To achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, the International Energy Agency scenario requires a 20% reduction in the emissions generated by the transportation sector – equivalent to 5.7 Gt by 2030*. It is therefore essential to implement policies that encourage the adoption of low-carbon transport systems, particularly within the automotive industry, through electric vehicles.
Mirova invests in companies that have begun the shift towards environmentally-sound mobility by making reasonable technological choices and adopting a risk management approach that accounts for the vehicle’s entire life cycle. Hydrogen fuel cells, improved battery recycling and a denser network of charging stations are just some of the solutions that exist.
Supporting their growth means supporting a greener mobility and the transition towards a carbon neutral economy.
