From 2021, sharing mobility will enter a revolutionary era: here we are with GreenVulcano in the new age of sustainable mobility.
IN EUROPE, THE TRANSPORTATION SECTOR IS STILL POLLUTING TOO MUCH AND – ACCORDING TO EUROSTAT – 70% OF ALL THE SMOG IS CAUSED BY ONLY 6 COUNTRIES, HEADED BY GERMANY (22.5%), UNITED KINGDOM (11.%) AND POLAND (10.3%). ITALY, INSTEAD, PRODUCES ONLY HALF OF ITS TEUTONIC NEIGHBOR’S EMISSIONS, AS HIGHLIGHTED BY GREENVULCANO, THE B2B BIG PLAYER BEHIND THE CURTAIN OF THE MAJOR SMART MOBILITY COMPANIES.
«From 2021, sharing mobility will kick off a revolutionary era, leading to an increasingly greener environmental impact. We’ll witness cleaner engines and a new mobility philosophy where sharing will have a central role,» GreenVulcano’s experts argue.
The new EU regulations come into effect this year already foresee a gradual transition towards zero-emission mobility, introducing new challenges and necessities. Thanks to tech partners such as GreenVulcano (https://www.greenvulcano.com/) these can be promptly tackled and rapidly overcome in a sector – the transportation industry – which is responsible for 30% of the total emissions (the 72% of which is caused by road transportation alone).
Other sectors already cut their emissions since 1990. But in the transportation field the increasing mobility of people – even if considering vehicle diversification and inclusion of “new” transport means as power-assisted bikes and kick scooters – caused the increase of CO2 emissions. That’s why, today, 70% of all European smog is caused by just 6 countries. First and foremost by Germany, which pollutes twice as much as Italy. It was GreenVulcano to highlight this, based on data gathered by Eurostat.
On top of the European league, Germany contributed to 22.5% of the total CO2 emissions in the atmosphere, followed by the United Kingdom with 11.4% and Poland with 10.3%. Then, we find France and Italy at around 10% and Spain at 7.7%.
Yet, for what concerns investments, solutions and timing, GreenVulcano (https://www.greenvulcano.com/) – with more than 100 employees and a 20-year-old wide experience – is a leader in Europe. It is regarded as the B2B player behind the curtain of the major smart mobility companies, as well as one of the most active «made-in-Italy hi-tech» research and development labs in the widest sectors.
However, as for individual cities, the chart sees Italy on the top – according to data published by the International Council on Clean Transportation. In the first and the second place, indeed, we find Milan and Turin respectively. On the podium, we also have Stuttgart, followed by Kyiv, Cologne, Haarlem and Berlin. Among the most polluted cities, there’s also Naples, which is the seventh.
The fight against pollution in 2021, hence, must get to the heart of the matter in a context involving all the countries currently invested in solving the health crisis with new strengthened social distancing measures and with an increasing return to sharing as an alternative to avoid crowded public transport.
According to GreenVulcano, Covid-19 is a further accelerator of sharing mobility while the new EU rules impose the manufacturers to reduce emissions by 15% for all vehicles and by 37.5% for cars within 2025 and by 31% for trucks within 2030. This way, they aim at a reduction of 90% of all the emissions generated by the transport sector by 2050.
«From 2021, sharing mobility will kick off a revolutionary era, leading to an increasingly greener environmental impact. We’ll witness cleaner engines and a new mobility philosophy where sharing will have a central role together with alternative, ideally zero-emission means of transport,» GreenVulcano’s experts argue.
But practically, what are the environmental benefits brought by sharing? GreenVulcano’s experts evaluate that for every 1,000 sharing cars we would save 2,000 tonnes of CO2 per year. It basically is the equivalent of planting 3,000 trees. Together with all the other vehicles – as kick scooters or power-assisted bikes – the impact is even close to zero.
The forecasts are positive: today, 6 million Italians are already subscribed to at least one sharing mobility service. But even if we only looked at the news, the trend is growing constantly. In the last months, we could also witness a boom of electric scooter sharing.
We should not forget that many startups contributed to the sharing mobility boom which – thanks to innovation and all-round integration B2B partners as GreenVulcano, whose strength is to support other companies from scratch – effectively responded to this new social need, leveraging the power of tech platforms to promote new ways to use these vehicles, widening the product lines and designing new business models.
«This phenomenon is not ascribed to private sharing and fleets,» GreenVulcano’s experts specify. This transformation is taking shape also for company fleets, having companies of every dimension shift towards the «sharing economy», promoting the use of public transport at the company level too.
Money-saving is remarkable for companies adopting this approach. This way, they can move from the concept of «Total cost of ownership» (TCO) to that of «Total cost of mobility» (TCM), moving away from the simple management costs of the fleet’s vehicles to the management costs of all company mobility at 360 degrees, including related services and outsourcing non-core activities to those who have more experience and expertise.
«Outsourcing is a phenomenon increasingly concerning bigger operators too since they definitely save on costs,» the company’s analysts argue. It is not a case that among GreenVulcano’s clients there are major players such as Octo Telematics or eDrivingSM, whose mission is to help more than a million drivers to reduce accidents and injuries.
Thanks to the experience gained in 20 years of activity, GreenVulcano has the right expertise to realize custom «shared mobility» solutions for cars, scooters, kick scooters and even electric bikes. It does so quickly and with optimized costs, so much that he became the ideal partner of multimodal mobility solutions as the current ones.
