COP26 monopolized much of the attention of the European mobility industry in early November. Hailed as the most significant climate event since the Paris Agreement, it produced a notable emission-free vehicle commitment from 13 countries and several companies, but there was a paramount recognition that it was time to look at it- beyond the tailpipe for real environmental improvements.
