How to promote clean mobility solutions in public procurement at the local and regional level?

The City of Gothenburg and Region Viistra Gotaland have high ambitions in reducing climate change. A cornerstone of this work is the regional objective to be fossilfree by 2030, which includes a fossil free public transport fleet.There are many on-going initiatives supporting the objective and as a result about 95 % of the procured public transport in the region ran on renewable fuels in 2017.

Revising the Clean Vehicles Directive

The general objective of the Clean Vehicles Directiveis to increase the market uptake of low- and zero-emission vehicles in public procurement and contribute to reducing overall transport emissions. Public procurement is one important tool in realizing these objectives. But how do we turn the Clean Vehicles Directive into an effective tool which helps the EU to reach its commitments under the Paris Agreement?

Join the City of Gothenburg and the Region Viistra Gotaland for a discussion on how to best design the Clean Vehicles Directive to ensure it becomes an efficient toolthat supports industry,localand regional initiatives to further develop and deploy clean mobility solutions.
