In a nutshell
The Global New Mobility Coalition (GNMC), curated by the World Economic Forum, is an active and diverse community of over 150 globally renowned experts, NGOs and companies for accelerating the shift to Shared, Electric and Autonomous Mobility (SEAM) system that provides for healthier cities, reduces carbon emissions by 95%, improves mobility efficiency by 70%, and decreases commuting costs by 40%, while tapping into a 600 billion-dollar business. The GNMC publicly communicates a sustainable mobility vision to civic, public and private stakeholder in order to catalyse supply and demand for carbon neutral mobility ecosystem by 2050. The GNMC also forms public-private partnerships designed to accelerate SEAM adoption through agile policy design and experimentation in handpicked cities, and iterates learning to a broader network of stakeholders to inform positive actions. GNMC is steered by the World Economic Forum, ClimateWorks, University of California Davis, China EV100, Uber, Energy Foundation China, Israel Institute of Technology (Technion), Lyft, Via, BMW, Ford, and Uber. Among its key partners are C40, OECD International Transport Forum, UITP, MaaS Alliance, Europe Polis Network of Cities, and the World Bank.
Deployed in the presence of supportive policy frameworks, shared, electric, and automated mobility technologies (SEAM) show strong potential to promote human well-being by dramatically improving transportation’s efficiency and reducing carbon emissions. However, this potential will not be seized without agile and well-designed new policy efforts informed by multi-stakeholder experts.
Co-develop, pilot, and scale awareness-building and policy initiatives that promote the benefits of shared, electric, and automated mobility technologies (SEAM) to society and the environment.
Research shows that SEAM solutions can contribute to sustainable mobility. However, with the rapid pace of technology change, the appropriate enabling environment remains unclear. Therefore, we see an acute need to co-develop awareness and policy jointly with decision-makers, private sector companies, researchers, and other stakeholders. We further see great value in translating accumulated knowledge into action through in-practice experimentation. We aim to jointly implement approaches with the potential for strong sustainability impact in partnership with cities and governments based on a continuous improvement process. We are committed to serving diverse mobility needs and tackling equity, efficiency, air quality, and climate impacts in transportation. A coalition comprised of an active and diverse multi stakeholder community is better positioned to drive a balanced and credible transition to a more sustainable transportation future via SEAM, than individual actors.
The coalition is primarily comprised of North American, European, and Asian partners from the public, private, third, and academic sectors. The Coalition has been initiated by the Forum’s Future of Mobility Platform and ClimateWorks Foundation.
The GNMC’s steering committee, through 2020, includes representatives from: Uber, Via, BMW, Cruise, ClimateWorks, Energy Foundation China, RMI, China EV100, Technion, and UC Davis. Among its partner coalitions are C40, Polis Network, OECD-ITF, UITP, MaaS Alliance, and China ICV Cities Alliance.
The coalition will:
- Consolidate knowledge relevant for informing private and public sector of sustainable urban mobility enabled through SEAM, i.e. more equitable mobility systems, better air quality, and lower carbon emissions.
- Reinforce and communicate the vision for sustainable urban mobility leveraging SEAM in an engaging manner.
- Co-design and test SEAM governance frameworks and supporting policies through multi-stakeholder projects.
- Communicate lessons through relevant global events and communication platforms, and scale best practices by engaging private and public decision-makers from new regions and supporting subsequent pilots.
