Overview
The goal of World Resources Institute’s Sustainable Urban Mobility program in India is to make cities more accessible, equitable, and livable. India’s urban population will be about 600 million by 2030, and transportation is the fastest growing sector contributing to carbon emissions. World Resources Institute is working to scale up private-sector innovation and remove barriers to safe, reliable, affordable, and low-carbon transportation options for millions of urban citizens. While focusing on transport, the program also addresses problems of air pollution, safety for women, road fatalities, unequal access to economic opportunities, traffic congestion, and urban sprawl.

for the SBTi Finance project  
This work is to further grow the Science Based Targets Initiative, specifically for financial institutions (SBTi Finance). SBTi Finance builds on attributional accounting based on the Greenhouse Gas Protocol’s Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) Standard. SBTi Finance is a framework for financial institutions to set targets that are aligned with climate scenarios, and that enable an ex-post evaluation of financial institutions’ contribution to real-economy emissions reductions in relation to net-zero targets. The framework includes a set of methods that can be used to set targets, criteria that SBTi will use to assess and validate targets submitted to the initiative, and implementation guidance.
