Tomorrow’s Mobility Solutions Are Here

9 Feb 2019 Jean-Luc de Wilde

On the eve of the climate summit in Paris, mobility worries decision-makers because – contrary to other sectors – pollution emanating from modes of transport continues to climb around the world, representing today more than a quarter of total emissions. Automobile congestion and noxious pollutants are pervasive. And yet, solutions are now coming to market […]

  We are on the brink of a clean industrial revolution and all sectors will be impacted. Transport is no different, and while there will be some disruption in the short-term, in the medium- and longer-term, the changes will bring about massive benefits. Digitalisation, decarbonisation, investment and the needs of people will be core elements […]

The distance remaining to low-carbon transport

13 Dec 2017 Elah Matt

Particulate Matter (PM), Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) and a range of hazardous hydrocarbons and other pollutants contribute significantly to the global air pollution crisis, which kills millions of people prematurely each year. The transport sector emits nearly a quarter of all energy-related greenhouse gases (GHG) with significant impacts on the global climate. With the Paris Agreement […]

Iceland: The Road to Recovery

19 Dec 2012 Revolve

Laxness and Independence “The tyranny of mankind; it was like the obstinate drip of water falling on a stone and hollowing it little by little; and this drip continued, falling obstinately, falling without pause on the souls of the children.” So go the words of one of Iceland’s finest literary figures, the Nobel laureate, Halldór Laxness. Published in two volumes in […]
