In the framework of the European Commission’s ‘Mobility Transition Pathway’ initiative speeding-up the European Commission’s overall Green Deal objectives to achieve climate neutrality by 2050, the Commission has kicked-off consultations on the greening and digitalisation of the mobility, transport and automotive ecosystem.
In response to the recently launched consultation, a coalition of the main automotive value chain actors, CECRA, ACEA, CLEPA and ETRMA, has worked out a sustainable action plan in response to the Commission’s consultation inviting stakeholders to reflect and contribute in order to help them to better define the costs, needs and conditions to accompany the transformation of the industrial mobility ecosystem.
The ‘Mobility Transition Pathway’, aiming to boost the transformation, will bring together all actors of the value chain, to better understand the specific concerns and challenges as well as identifying possible areas of cooperation and common solutions. The added-value of the approach lies not only in sharing experience and best practices in embracing industrial transition but also in looking for synergy in solutions among the three sectors - automotive, rail and waterborne sectors - and defining approaches which can benefit as much as possible the entire ecosystem.
Based on the outcome of the consultation, the Commission will set up meetings with stakeholders in the course of 2022 to deepen the discussions and finalise the transition pathway for the mobility ecosystem. The coalition of the main automotive value chain actors will contribute to this process however urges policymakers to take it into account its 10-point action plan when setting future policy implementations to accelerate the transition pathway for a resilient, innovative, sustainable and digital mobility ecosystem.
