Press release August 3rd, 2022
What do NASA and Blue Systems have in common?
The answer is – we both care about the environment. And to be even more specific – we both care about the impact our cities have on the levels of GHG emissions.
In 2021, global CO2 emissions rebounded to their highest level in history, and cities account for over 70% of them. So we need to unite our efforts both in space and on Earth to make a difference.
In space, NASA is using satellites to measure CO2 emissions. It helps cities monitor their emissions by analyzing the length and color of sun rays absorbed by atmospheric gasses. In turn, we at Blue Systems continue our mission on the ground with a focus on urban mobility.
We know that a major part of all emissions come from industrial and motorized transport systems that use huge quantities of fossil fuels. To address that, we have decided to have a hand in supporting cities on their way to decarbonization.
Today, we are thrilled to officially announce the launch of a new environmental KPI, which is now available as a feature of our Mobility Manager Platform.
It allows cities to monitor the efficiency of shared mobility in terms of CO2 emission savings. In other words, it equips a city with instruments to compare and understand how much CO2 emissions have been saved by using clean transportation options like e-scooters or e-bikes, as opposed to ICE vehicles.
We believe that positive statistics on the contribution of shared mobility to tackling climate change issues can help cities justify their investment in new modes of transportation and smart mobility programs, thus ensuring their sustainable and equitable growth.
And then, who knows, maybe by 2050 NASA electric propulsion spacecrafts will appear on the maps of our Mobility Manager?
Always innovating forward,
Blue (Green) Systems
