Cecile Texier, Alstom - December, 2015

Alstom is a key player in the transport sector and works on developing efficient and sustainable solutions. In particular they focus on tram development as part of their imitative to support reduction of carbon dioxide emissions globally. They work with over 54 cities in Spain, Brasil, France and North Africa implementing tram systems. Cecile gives a case study of Casablanca where by providing a tram system, pedestrian areas have been renovated, over 4000 trees planted and socially deprived areas have been linked with the centre. Cecile hopes to see transport get more visibility at COP21 as 23% of global emissions are from fuel combustion in the transport sector.
