PROGRAMS

The goal of the transport portfolio (cargo and passengers) is to contribute directly to the reduction of fossil fuel emissions in Brazil. Since transportation is the main source of emissions in Brazilian cities, we understand the urgency of bringing the debate on urban mobility to the next level, encouraging and investing in cycling and walking – bringing into light the problems associated with the use of individual motorized transportation, which occupies 80% of public space but benefits only approximately 20% of the country’s population.

Pollution caused by the burning of fossil fuels brings about serious health issues, such as breathing and cardiovascular problems, for example. In order to transform this scenario, the portfolio relies on the health narrative to leverage low-carbon transport initiatives. The portfolio strategy comprises the following initiatives:

Engaging civil society in the design, monitoring and implementation of mobility policies - Investing in the quality and infrastructure of public transportation and active transport (cycling and walking), making sich alternatives more attractive and accessible, both in physical and in financial terms.

Deepening knowledge and debate about the economy of transport - Cities are increasingly designed in such a way as to make individual transport the main alternative. In this sense, it is necessary to rethink urban planning in order to change how people move within the cities, avoiding trips that are too long and fostering a change in the main means of transport, so that the quality of transportation can be improved.

Exploring interfaces between air quality and health and transport policies and technologies - Promoting the improvement of technologies, investing in alternative fuel options for automobiles and in the electrification of bus fleets, in such a way as to reduce emissions.
