The Mission
According to International Energy Agency, the transportation sector accounts for one-fourth of the global energy-related CO2 emissions. Mobility professionals are the driving force motivating the convergence of vehicles, energy grids, supply chains, and communications networks (IEA, 2021).

Government and industry are increasingly turning to new technology to support a cleaner and more efficient world. And, to meet the goal of net zero emissions, the businesses and individuals involved require a complete transformation in R&D and process standardization.

As the oldest and largest organization for engineers in the aerospace and ground vehicle sectors, SAE International is continuing to support industry through Sustainable Mobility Solutions. We’re bringing together the latest technical research, training, and expertise to address the most pressing problems in the transportation ecosystem.

SAE’s Sustainable Mobility Solutions is committed to leading you through the many unanswered questions around:
•  Best practices,
•  Safety protocols,
•  Workforce development.

We’re here to support your growth as you lead the way to net zero emissions.

Focus Areas

We’re developing comprehensive, data-driven research, technical reports, training, and standards vital to achieving net zero emissions.
