Roadmap for Low-Carbon and Sustainable Mobility in India

Undertaken By: Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry,    Recent Publication: 2020

India’s Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) commit to reduce emission intensity of the Indian economy by 33 to 35 per cent from 2005 levels. The transport sector is one of the main drivers of climate change in the world (~25% of CO2 emissions). In India, it is the third largest emitter at 10%, and is expected to grow sevenfold by 2050 over 2010 levels. In order to fulfil the sector’s NDC commitments, actions need to be taken to decarbonize and to build cities of tomorrow that are sustainable and inclusive and leave the least possible imprint on the environment. A multi-stakeholder approach that includes government agencies, industry, financial institutions, technology companies, civil society organizations, think-tanks, academia, etc., can build the desired momentum towards integrated design and planning for implementing sustainable low-carbon transport solutions.
