The inaugural Green Mobility Series - presented by EVCo and SGInnovate aims to drive the importance and benefits of going green while enabling deep tech startups to stay focused on their core products and services.
Leading the Green Revolution in Decarbonising Mobility Join us as we explore how deep tech startups can embrace sustainability within the context of decarbonising mobility. In a tech landscape known for its substantial carbon footprint, decarbonisation is imperative to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and address the global climate crisis. Tech companies, including startups, play a pivotal role in shaping sustainable solutions and can enhance their brand image, attract environmentally conscious customers, and open new revenue streams. Titled Green Mobility Series presented by SGInnovate and EVCo, this first of the inaugural series sheds light on the importance of sustainability and also demonstrates how deep tech startups can actively participate in this journey: Startups are both implementers and partners in co-innovation within the green mobility space. By highlighting the significance of sustainability, simplifying carbon measurement, and emission reduction, we aim to empower startups in staying focused on their core products and services while pioneering sustainability in decarbonising mobility.
