22 November 2021 | Climate change is a top priority for the United Nations, and it has become a challenge for many organisations and institutions dealing with climate change mitigation and adaptation. Currently, transport CO2 emissions are about 30 % in developed countries, which represents about 23 % of the total man-made CO2 emissions worldwide. The agreement to reduce transport CO2 emissions at least by 50% by 2050 is consensual.
This ambitious goal needs addressing key challenges such as:
- Innovative transportation technologies,
- Low-carbon energy,
- Improved transport infrastructure,
- Consumer habits and information,
- Legal instruments.
A student challenge organised by the Energy for Climate (E4C) Center of Institut Polytechnique de Paris aims to address these problems with systemic innovative solutions.
