The threat posed by climate change is very real and imminent, as a number of scientistsand organizations have provided tangible evidence about its devastating effects. However, it’s good to see that people and governments across the globe are coming together to work towards common, prioritized goals that seek to reduce carbon emissions and undertake other measures to tackle the growing threat of climate change. The transportation sector is a major contributor to carbon emissions, and expertsbelieve that if smart mobility can be embraced globally, it would significantly reduce greenhouse gases and cut the risk posed by climate change.
Towards that end, the Economic Times will be conducting the Smart Mobility Summit on December 4 at the Taj Mahal Hotel, New Delhi. The primary purpose of the Summit is to create a blueprint for the future of smart mobility in the country. The Summit also seeks to spread awareness about the importance of smart mobility.

Smart mobility will save $330 billion by 2030
Apart from protecting the environment and reducing the risks associated with climate change, smart mobility solutions will also help cut costs in a significant manner. As per estimates, smart mobility solutions will help save 876 million tons of petrol and diesel during the period 2017 to 2030. This would translate into cost savings of approximately Rs 22 lakh crore or USD 330 billion. In terms of emission, this would be a reduction of 1 gigaton of carbon-dioxide emissions. Moreover, smart mobility solutions will reduce carbon emissions by 37 percent and land-based energy demand by 64 percent by 2030.
