Organisational structure The rationale for the Paris Declaration was not an initiative per se, but rather an ad-hoc Declaration prepared before the COP21 to gather the different transport initiatives on

Electro-Mobility (Taxis4SmartCities, C40 Clean Bus Declaration, International Zero-Emission Vehicle Alliance) under a single objective: committing to broaden efforts towards sustainable transport electrification – including that at least 20% of all road vehicles (cars, 2 and 3-wheelers, trucks, buses and others) are to be electrically powered by 2030. This Declaration was lauched by the transport focal points among the LPAA quartet (France, Peru, UNFCCC and Executive Office of the Secretary-General (EOSG) mainly in order to increase visibility and obtain a greater press coverage.

Description The Paris Declaration on Electro-Mobility and Climate Change & Call to Action brings together individual and collective commitments to increase electro-mobility to levels compatible with a less-than 2-degree pathway. It builds on current successful experiences worldwide and the converging interest of all transport modes for hybrid/electric solutions.
Objectives "With varying mandates, capabilities, and circumstances, we commit to advance our work individually as well as collectively wherever possible to increase electro-mobility to levels compatible with a less-than 2-degree pathway." The commitment made in the declaration.
