The Paris Declaration on Electro-Mobility and Climate Call to Action


The chances of there being intelligent life in other galaxies is remote, especially as the moment a species evolves to be able to exploit their planet, they inevitably destroy their home by exhausting their natural resources, in a kleptocratic frenzy. Let us hope there is still some intelligent life on earth concerning the sustainability development goals.






Lima – Paris Action Agenda

Transport contributes almost one-quarter (23 percent) of the current global energy-related
greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and is growing faster than any other energy end-use sector.


GHG emissions from transport are anticipated to rise from today’s levels by nearly 20 percent
by 2030 and close to 50 percent by year 2050 unless major action is undertaken.


Limiting the global temperature increase to below 2 degrees Celsius requires changing this
transport emissions trajectory, which involves the development of an integrated electro-mobility ecosystem encompassing various transport modes, coupled with the low-carbon production of electricity and hydrogen, implemented in conjunction with broader sustainable transport principles.

According to the International Energy Agency, this transition will require, inter alia, pursuit
of global rail transport electrification, already underway, as well as at least 20 percent of all
road transport vehicles globally to be electrically driven by 2030 – if warming is to be limited to 2 degrees or less. Of this, light vehicles would primarily contribute: more than 400 million two and three-wheelers in 2030, up from roughly 230 million today; and more than 100 million cars in 2030, up from 1 million today.

To achieve this goal IEA modelling says electric drive vehicles (battery-electric, plug-in hybrid, and fuel cell vehicles, including two and three wheelers, cars, light commercial vans, buses, trucks and others) need to represent 35 percent of global sales in 2030.


We, the undersigned, acknowledge the scale of the challenge and the scope of opportunity.
With varying mandates, capabilities, and circumstances, we commit to advance our work
individually as well as collectively wherever possible to increase electro-mobility to levels compatible with a less-than 2-degree pathway.

We also call on governments at all levels, businesses, cooperative initiatives, and others to
commit to this Declaration, take action, and advance global momentum for electro-mobility.



COP26 in November of 2021 is important, to firm up the above Declaration, and Paris Agreement generally from the COP21 Conferences of the Parties.

Electric Vehicle Initiative (EVI)

Geographical coverage: Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan,
Korea, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, United


Summary: EVI is a multi-government policy forum established in the framework of the Clean
Energy Ministerial and dedicated to accelerating the introduction and adoption of electric
vehicles worldwide. In particular, EVI seeks to facilitate the global deployment of 20 million
electric vehicles, including plug-in hybrid electric vehicles and fuel cell vehicles, by 2020. EVI
will enable progress toward this goal by: (1) encouraging the development of national
deployment goals; (2) collecting and disseminating information on best practices and
policies allowing to achieve those goals, and encouraging their adoption; (3) involving cities
to share experiences and lessons learned from early electric vehicle deployment in urban
areas and regions; (4) sharing information on public investment in RD&D programs to ensure
that the most crucial global gaps in vehicle technology development are being addressed;
and (5) engaging private-sector stakeholders to better align expectations, discuss the
respective roles of industry and government, and focus on the benefits of continued
investment in electric vehicle technology innovation and electric vehicle procurement for


Time-frame: Since 2010 (EVI establishment)


Reporting: Progress towards the EVI goal will be monitored by regular updates of the Global
EV Outlook publication, a collective undertaking of EVI member governments gathering
primary data and information on the deployment of electric vehicles, electric vehicle supply
equipment, the progress in cost reduction and energy density of batteries and the level of
investment on research, development and demonstration.

Renault-Nissan Alliance - Worldwide


Summary: Electric vehicles are an available solution to mitigating climate change
issues. The Renault-Nissan Alliance has been a pioneer in developing and massmarketing a full line-up of electric vehicles since 2010.


As market leader, we commit to pursue and reinforce this strategy. Electric vehicles
environmental benefits will be maximized only if they represent a significant portion
of total global sales. This critical mass requires an holistic approach involving private
and public actors.
