Global carbon emissions from the transport sector account for almost a quarter of all global carbon emissions from energy. Reducing global transport carbon emissions is a big prize to win, but challenging one as economic growth leads to increases in passenger and freight activity. The opportunities for investors, sponsors, and financiers in meeting this challenge are equally huge. The transport sector spans road, rail, aviation, and maritime sectors and is a truly global challenge. But the prize also creates opportunities to improve air quality, reduce GHG emissions, and mobility benefits for the consumer.
In this webinar, our esteemed panel discussed the challenges and opportunities available to the infrastructure and project finance community in decarbonising global transport through a combination of policy, regulation, technological innovation, and finance.
