Could 2021 be the beginning of the end for the internal combustion engine? In a pivotal year for climate action, the tipping point for zero emission vehicles (ZEVs) is getting closer as businesses, governments, cities, states and regions around the world push forward ambitious commitments. But these pockets of leadership are not enough to win the race to zero – more needs to be done and faster.

With COP26 round the corner and clean road transport one of its key themes, this high-level plenary session will showcase the highest levels of global ambition. Featuring contributions from international political and corporate leaders, this event will: 

  • Explore the technological and financial innovations helping to accelerate uptake of zero emission vehicles
  • Showcase real-world examples of inspiring leadership from around the world on clean road transport
  • Identify and discuss the opportunities for driving a just transition in the automotive industry
