Geneva, 15 September – Today, the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and Movin'On announced a new partnership to accelerate the transition to sustainable mobility globally in line with a 1.5°C scenario. The two organizations strive toward a bigger impact to achieve mobility decarbonization by engaging their respective networks and strengths in coordinated action.

That's why we are thrilled to announce that we are joining forces with Movin'On to find synergies for faster and more efficient action, " said Thomas Deloison, Director, Mobility, WBCSD.
We are delighted to welcome the WBCSD to the Movin'On's Corporate Advisory Board to enrich our co-innovation actions and bring complementary views on the major challenges of mobility. WBSCD will experiment with new pilot projects in the transport field, which can then be developed and deployed by Movin'On's partners

Movin'On brings the relevant expertise to promising initiatives and employs different ways of working.

The new partnership between WBCSD and Movin'On will focus on four action areas:
