Info

The Mobility Eco Forum 2024 aims to create a space for reflection and action on the need to implement a sustainable travel policy in companies and public administrations in order to decarbonise corporate mobility in Spain and Europe.

Experts will explain the data and reasons why it is important for organisations and companies to have a travel management that integrates ambitious environmental sustainability criteria.

Success stories and best practices will be shared that can inspire other actors and sectors. Tools for calculating CO2 emissions from travel will also be provided and the reasons why rail and telework play a key role in mitigating (and adapting to) climate change will be presented.

Format: free of charge, by invitation and under Chatham House rules, to create a space of trust between participants and ensure a quality exchange of knowledge and information.

Language: Spanish.
