The need for electrification

May López, professor at OBS Business School and Development Director at the platform Companies for Sustainable Mobility, underlined the need for electrification of the motor vehicle fleet as the main environmental measure to reduce pollution on the urban roads as a State measure. She also highlighted the global environmental concern of the unstoppable carbon footprint and how measures such as this one can have a significant impact on its mitigation.
