Zero and Low Carbon Mobility Ideas – Made in Germany

With its extensive climate protection strategy, Germany has provided a fertile framework for innovation. Many diverse mobility solutions have been developed and implemented by German companies, cities and initiatives. This brochure presents ten hands-on approaches to climate-friendly mobility and green logistics. It includes concrete projects in the areas of urban passenger and freight transport, covering:

  • integrated and sustainable mobility concepts (mobility stations, Match Rider, smartPORT
    & cargobikes),
  • effective promotion (city cycling),
  • innovation in technologies (eBus & eHighway),
  • smart assessment (PTV, EUREF campus)


While this selection is not meant to be comprehensive, it may provide new ideas and inspiration to utilise smart mobility solutions to reach substantial GHG emission reduction in the transport sector – made in Germany, but applicable worldwide.

One of the central aims of TUMI Friends is to bring together a broad range of expertise from various involved stakeholders. Initiated by the Federal German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB), TUMI Friends serves as a guide to sustainable mobility and green logistics solutions from Germany. As a platform for exchanging knowledge, expertise and experiences, TUMI Friends supports the
transformation towards sustainability in developing and emerging countries.

TUMI Friends bundles companies, research institutions and civil society around the topic of climate-friendly mobility, fostering sustainable development paired with CO2 mitigation.
