Electric mobility

UN Environment’s Electric mobility programme works with countries, with a focus on emerging economies, to support a shift from fossil fuels to electric vehicles.

Today’s transport sector is almost completely dependent on fossil fuels, but this doesn’t have to be the case. Leading by example, countries like Norway and China have put in place policies to support the use of electric vehicles, with measurable success. Such practices need to be scaled up and replicated around the world.

We draw on our extensive network and country contacts to promote electric mobility. This includes exchanging best practices and clean technology options as well as supporting the development of electric mobility strategies and roadmaps at national and regional level.
