Shell Foundation and TUMI, the government-led funding initiative focused on sustainable mobility, have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding to advance the awareness and activity around sustainable transport.
The MoU was signed at the Transforming Transportation conference in DC and commits both organisations to collaborating over work on advocacy, pipeline development and impact measurement in the sector.
‘TUMI recognises the importance in developing the private sector and its role in advancing sustainable in mobility, and looks to leverage SF’s expertise in working with entrepreneur-led solutions,’ said Daniel Moser, Management Head at TUMI.
SF Director Sam Parker said: “TUMI is a great fit for us as a strategic partner. Its progressive approach in promoting sustainable mobility solutions aligns with our own vision of improving the safety, affordability, reliability, and inclusiveness of urban mobility services.”
TUMI was initiated by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development and is implemented as a GIZ (the Germany development agency) project, bringing together some of the world’s leading institutions working on sustainable mobility to increase access to affordable, safe, low-carbon and inclusive urban mobility in developing countries and emerging economies.
