SiMPlify is a global city-business collaboration to foster innovation for easy, safe and clean urban mobility systems for all.
By 2030, around 60% of the global population will live in cities, 75% by 2050. Urban mobility currently accounts for 40% of all CO2 emissions of road transport and up to 70% of other pollutants from transport. Transport creates emissions of GHG; smog presents serious public-health concerns. The question of how to enhance mobility while reducing congestion, accidents and pollution is a common challenge to all major cities in the world.
Business has the expertise, the strategic interest and the financial capacity to provide low-carbon mobility solutions in cities. As the need for urban mobility is growing, the way we travel and transport goods must change. To do so, each city must be invested in finding the right responses to these challenges, taking their specific circumstances into account. To create better, smarter, more sustainable cities, cities and businesses need to work together on tailor-made solutions.
SiMPlify helps connect companies with city authorities and all relevant stakeholders; proposing an objective model; promoting innovation in mobility systems and providing citizens with easy, safe and clean mobility. SiMPlify uses a fact-based mobility planning tool and a set of sustainable mobility indicators.
Its deployment facilitates collaboration between business and cities to find ways to meet a city’s sustainability needs while helping create livable, sustainable and equitable cities.
