Decarbonization of the Czech automotive industry

After the successful delivery of last year’s project focused on the decarbonization of the Czech automotive industry, the climate team of EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy leads its second round. This time, the project aims to use already acquired knowledge, contacts and resources to help create a conducive environment for discussion between the representatives of the industry and the public sector. It will also contribute to our understanding of the decarbonization pathways through evidence-based research. Lastly, the project aims to raise social awareness about the challenges and opportunities presented by the transition of the automotive industry by organizing events and media briefings. This year’s project will be shaped by the Czech Presidency of the European Council in the second half of the year.

Project goals

  • To enable fast and fair decarbonization of the automotive industry in the Czech Republic.
  • To bridge the gap between policy- and decision-makers and companies.
  • To raise social awareness and acceptance of the inevitable changes in the transport sector.
  • To help people identify with the idea of a new ecosystem of mobility.
  • To provide evidence-based recommendations to the stakeholders involved in the decarbonization process.
