Our mission is to catalyze and help implement environmentally, socially and financially sustainable urban transport and urban development solutions to improve quality of life in cities. Since 2002, the EMBARQ Network has worked globally with city and national governments, strategic partners, and the private sector to achieve on-the-ground change and influence policy at the local, national and international levels. With centers in Brazil, China, India, Mexico, and Turkey, EMBARQ has already influenced 120 cities and has the goal of influencing 200+ emerging cities by 2016.
We work to reduce traffic crashes and fatalities worldwide, making cities safer by design. EMBARQ’s on-the-ground work helps to expand sustainable urban mobility options by shifting urban design and transport infrastructure to serve people, not cars. By helping to shift passengers to efficient, high-capacity modes of transport, EMBARQ helps reduce time spent traveling, giving urban residents more time to live, not commute. We work to ensure that investments in sustainable urban development and transport projects achieve maximum impact, and catalyze sustainable transport solutions that reduce the amount of CO2 and other greenhouse gases emitted by the transport sector, helping to mitigate climate change.
