Sustainability and Environment
Climate change is one of the great crises of our time and the transportation sector is a currently a major contributor of carbon emissions. MIT research has contributed to major advances in the design of mobility systems, vehicles and policies from a sustainability perspective. Research labs at MIT are working on such diverse problems as the design of sustainable neighborhoods, organizational culture change to reduce air travel and circular supply chains.
The research labs and faculty working in this area are shown below. You can see a full listing of the people and labs involved with the MIT Mobility Initiative by navigating to the people page and the labs page.
