Delve into the world of environmentally friendly transportation

Studies show that driving an electric car can significantly reduce pollution and save an average of 1.5 million grams of carbon dioxide in just over a year.

This three-week course from Labdox aims to provide a vision for a better life through education about clean transport solutions like electromobility and green logistics.

Explore the business models and investment opportunities created by e-mobility

The European Union announced a zero-emissions target for new cars by 2035. By 2035, the largest automotive markets will go electric, and this has the potential of opening up 30 million job opportunities and an investment of more than 500 billion USD.

On this course, you’ll discover the profitability of the e-mobility industry and explore the economic avenues created by electric vehicles and charging and battery technology.

As environmental awareness grows, it is becoming evident that the greatest contributors to carbon emissions are large corporations. As a result, many organisations are facing pressure to reduce their impact by implementing green practices.

Through an examination of the current trends and changes to the manufacturing industry, you’ll explore the possibilities presented by e-mobility, and the potential growth in competition for leading companies.
