Alstom will promote the critical role public transport, specifically rail mobility solutions will play in any country’s sustainable development efforts to address climate change issues. Moreover, Alstom in collaboration with Ernst & Young (EY) will publish a position paper as a contribution to COP27, on how urban rail transport is critical for Africa to address its sustainability needs, demonstrating its environmental, social, and economic benefits for Africa’s growing cities.

“Strong investment in rail will enable the decarbonization of transport, in addition to many other benefits essential to sustainable development such as equal access to transport, social progress, and economic development. Transport accounts for more than a quarter of global energy consumption; it is one of the human activities that continue to cause C0emissions to rise. COP27 is an opportunity for Alstom to showcase its commitment to support Net Zero mobility by building innovative, sustainable solutions with a lower carbon footprint, while actively contributing to public debates on sustainable development policies,” said Cécile Texier, Vice President of Sustainability & CSR, Alstom.
