The transportation sector, which includes automotive, represents about one quarter of all emissions from fossil fuels and challenges in terms of climate mitigation. Decarbonisation of the transport sector is one of the major transitions in any low-carbon scenario.

The automotive industry is important to deliver on the ambitions to decarbonize
the sector. WBA believes that there is momentum for climate action within the auto industry. This benchmark and the methodology can set an important example for other industries within the transportation sector to deliver on their decarbonization
strategies.

This report presents the scope, industry, methodology and companies for inclusion in our first benchmark.
