Berlin Partner supports global Drive to Zero initiative

Berlin Partner for Business and Technology joined the global @Drive to Zero initiative. The international program and campaign "Drive to Zero" aims to enable and accelerate the growth of global zero- and near-zero-emission (ZE) commercial vehicles, with the vision that ZE technology will be commercially viable by 2025 and dominate by 2040 in specific vehicle segments and regions.


"With its low-emission zone in the city center, experience with clean energy technology development, and cluster of innovative companies and projects, the Berlin capital region is already a global leader accelerating the transport sector's drive to zero. By joining Drive to Zero and endorsing the ‘Global MOU,’ Berlin Partner is now further demonstrating its leadership position and commitment to scaling clean transportation solutions around a benchmark of 100% zero-emissions truck and bus sales by 2040 in support of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.”
