There are already lines of electric vehicles that meet the growing mobility needs.. But to have a profound positive impact on carbon emission reduction, we must change scale.

The partnership with COP21 allows to offer an additional service to public transportation in order to ensure the travel of the delegates of this event which aims to be carbon neutral. This partnership is a way to ensure consistency between the issues tackled during the conference and the form of the event. It will also be an opportunity to highlight the environmental benefits of electric vehicles and encourage the development of charging facilities that have an essential role in the harmonious deployment of zero emission mobility.
