The Mobility in Transition Institute

is a not-for-profit association which aims to produce analyses and recommendations based on data, expertise and multi-stakeholder dialogue, to foster transition.

The situation

of greenhouse gas emissions in France are caused by the transport sector
of these CO2 emissions are generated by road transport

The genesis of the project

The project was launched in 2021 through an initiative led by Iddri and financed by ECF, in response to a need for consultation and objectivization of the issues involved in a sectoral transition.

After two years of incubation within Iddri, the Mobilité en Transition initiative has become the Institut Mobilités en transition in order to pursue its development.

Scope and positioning
Frame 567369468

Decarbonizing road transportation

Our scope is focused on behavioral levers (modal shift, limitation of kilometers traveled) and technological levers (electrification, alternative fuels) by integrating sobriety logics (vehicles efficiency).

The aim is to work on the conditions for operational implementation of the transition in the short and medium term, in France and in Europe.

The Institute is a place for producing analyses and recommendations based on expertise. The originality of the method lies in the characterization of the issues at stake through multi-stakeholder consultation, and the development of a unique modeling tool that gathers data on the entire french vehicles fleet, the fiscal and regulatory framework, and the typology of vehicle owners.

The sector is at a pivotal stage in the operational implementation of the necessary transition defined by the French and European regulatory frameworks.

The transition is unavoidable and engaged

The European regulatory framework defines an ambitious trajectory and targets for achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. This framework is translated at national and local level by political decisions and technical, industrial or infrastructure objectives, which require a new systemic approach.

Only a socially just and equitable transition is possible

Implementing transition involves economic and social adjustment costs, which must be shared equitably to guarantee acceptability.

Through planning, public policies must anticipate and prevent these risks of blockages by providing a clear narrative around the conditions of support for the most vulnerable.
