Urban Zero Night: Enabling green mobility – Perspectives for Cities
How can mobility in modern, urban areas offer potential for climate protection? At the Urban Zero Night, which is taking place during the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, Klaus Rosenfeld, CEO of Schaeffler AG, and Christian Sewing, CEO of Deutsche Bank, will focus on urban mobility from various perspectives.
Identifying potential: How do climate protection and large cities go together?
According to the United Nations Environment Programme, global emissions must be reduced by 7.6 percent during the next decade in order to meet the Paris Climate Agreement’s target of limiting the maximum global temperature increase to 1.5 °C. We can only achieve this objective collaboratively through strong partnerships and a transformation in society, the economy, and industry.
Cities are facing a very special challenge when it comes to climate protection. Whether it is increasing settlement density or the growing industrial sector: Many factors lead to increased CO2 emissions in large cities – including the increased volume of traffic. Urban mobility concepts must address precisely this point.
Urban Zero Night: Informative keynotes and exciting discussions
But how can green mobility be implemented in urban areas? This question is the subject of various keynote presentations at the event “Urban Zero Night: Enabling green mobility – Perspectives for Cities”, which is taking place during the 26th UN Climate Change conference in Glasgow. As hosts of this event, we and Deutsche Bank will discuss our ambitions regarding sustainability and the implementation of urban mobility in our respective areas of expertise.
After the keynote presentations, a podium discussion will take place with Klaus Rosenfeld, CEO of Schaeffler AG, Christian Sewing, CEO of Deutsche Bank, and Philipp Rode, Executive Director LSE Cities. The topics discussed will include how to best manage the challenges and utilize the opportunities offered in cities.
