Arup’s 10 thoughts for the future of low-emission mobility

Arup’s 10 thoughts for the future of low-emission mobility

Around the world, advances in technology combined with the drive to improve air quality and lower carbon emissions are leading to disruptive change in the movement of passengers and freight. There is also a strong desire to ‘come back better’ as we recover from the COVID-19 crisis that has swept many countries around the globe. 

The move to a low-emission vehicle future will require new thinking and infrastructure, from innovative policies to support uptake to new charging infrastructure and network upgrades. The decisions we make today need to be future proofed against the most likely of these trends, avoiding the risk of poor investment decisions and stranded assets.
