Brief project summary

The city of Hamburg and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) work together to develop solutions to achieve a cleaner, safer and better connected mobility in Hamburg

Short activity description

WBCSD has established a city task force with Hamburg’s Department for Economy, Transport and Innovation, which will work under the leadership of Daimler along with the participation of BMW, Brisa, Deutsche Bahn, Ford, Fujitsu, Pirelli, Toyota and Volkswagen to analyse Hamburg’s mobility status against criteria such as environmental compatibility, economic efficiency and quality of life. Based on this analysis, the WBCSD will develop recommendations on how to improve sustainability in Hamburg’s transportation system. The ultimate goal of the project is to accelerate and extend access to safe, reliable and comfortable mobility for all, whilst aiming for affordability, zero traffic accidents, low environmental impact, and reduced demand on energy and time.

Is this project a best practice? Why?

The project brings together corporate competitors (BMW, BP, Bridgestone, Brisa, Daimler, Deutsche Bahn, Ford, Fujitsu, Honda, Michelin, Nissan, Pirelli, Shell, Toyota, Volkswagen) and fosters cooperation between them and the public authorities.
