We need a transport system that serves our needs without putting our health, safety and the planet at risk. We need a future where cities are developed holistically and bring together a range of sustainable solutions including promoting non-motorized and public transport that prioritizes people’s quality of life and health. Where corporations and local governments adopt ethical, inclusive and safe practices that actively contribute to the energy transition and both are held accountable.
Right now, there is a growing movement to tackle these problems and hold corporations accountable. People’s lives and health are at stake now and we cannot wait for the climate crisis to worsen even more before we see action.
With our research and campaigns, Stand.earth and the Clean Mobility Collective are exposing the hidden health and climate impacts of large e-commerce and delivery companies that are making record-breaking profits, and holding those corporations accountable for reducing their pollution.
These companies can and must step up to protect families, communities, and the climate. Companies like Amazon need to know clean air and public health aren’t for sale. Together, we can move Amazon and other companies to commit to zero emissions deliveries by 2030.
These corporations are some of the wealthiest and most powerful entities in the world. Our work to clean up their emissions can catalyze their power to push for transformative change and ensure streets are for people, not pollution.
