Mitigating climate change and its impacts will require building on the momentum achieved by the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, which entered into force on 4 November 2016. Stronger efforts are needed to build resilience and limit climate-related hazards and natural disasters.
The world’s energy consumption is the dominant contributor to climate change, accounting for around 60% of total global greenhouse gas emissions. Curbing the carbon intensity of energy use is a key objective in mitigating the potentially devastating effects of climate change. One way this can be achieved is by rapidly phasing out the use of fossil fuels for road transportation by shifting to electric vehicles, as road transportation accounts for 20% of all greenhouse gas emissions worldwide.
Royal HaskoningDHV recognizes the importance of this issue through our commitment to transition our fleet of over 500 cars to electric vehicles in the Netherlands by 2021, and internationally by 2030. Read more
