Oliver Wyman is proud to be an industry sponsor for this virtual event hosted by Climate Action. Transportation underpins our society, connecting people, cities, economies fostering growth and employment. Yet as millions of us move within and between cities and countries every single day, transport accounts for 25% of global emissions.
With global trade and travel swelling to meet demands of a growing consumer population, a business-as-usual trajectory in the transport sector would see emissions rocket further.
Action is needed now across all asset classes, full value chains and life cycles. Electric vehicles may be at a tipping point but heavy lifting is now required to decarbonize the giants of the aviation and shipping industries, as well as to commercialize zero-emission freight. Carbon loops must be closed and cleaner alternative technologies must be implemented at scale at cost competitiveness.
