Sustainable urban mobility

Materiality and goals

GRI 3-3

GRI 203-1


Target horizon

Improve traffic safety for all road users in urban areas


Make the flow of traffic in cities more efficient and optimise resource and infrastructure requirements


Expand sustainable mobility through the expansion of charging infrastructure and cyclical use concepts for transport systems


The majority of the world’s population already lives in towns and cities. According to a United Nations forecast, the share will be almost 70 percent by 2050. This has consequences for the volume of traffic and quality of life in the city: a clever mobility mix, the further expansion of electric mobility and other types of zero-emission drive, plus solutions for the more efficient transport of goods are therefore more important than ever.

The goal of the Mercedes-Benz Group is not only to counteract the negative effects of urbanisation. Rather, the Group wants to further improve the quality of life in cities with sustainable mobility and transport solutions. Electric mobility is a key lever in this regard – but not the only one. A comprehensive electric mobility ecosystem of products, services, technologies and innovations is needed.

The Mercedes-Benz Group is facing up to these challenges and is already shaping the transport revolution of tomorrow with intelligent mobility solutions.

Electromobility ecosystem
The term electromobility ecosystem refers to a socio-technical system, which, similar to a biological ecosystem, renders mutually complementary services to the benefit of a host of system partners. This includes, for example, the provision of electric vehicles as well as energy, charging infrastructure and charging services including home energy storage systems. Participants include internal company units, IT systems, customers, as well as suppliers and third parties.
