Life cycle environmental assessment of a transition to mobility servitization
MetadataShow full item record
Mobility servitization modes are increasingly popular and some literature has suggested that their environmental impacts are less than those of privately owned cars. This research assesses the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of mobility servitization based on different scenarios: carsharing, carpooling and car ownership (representing the range of occupancy rates), and the changes in vehicle technology (lightweighting and electrification). Life Cycle Assessment is selected as the method and results are interpreted in passenger kilometre. The highest GHG reduction is recorded in pooled adoption scenario, representing the highest occupancy rate in servitization modes. The increasing trends of vehicle lightweighting and electrification can potentially reduce the GHG impacts (during production and use phases) by 35-37%.
