Bangladesh to produce lithium batteries, electric vehicles to cut emissions

Bangladesh's commitment to lowering emissions in line with the Paris Agreement is reflected in its nationally determined contribution (NDC). Within this, the transport sector contributes 9% of the country's total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Bangladesh has set forth a target to reduce 3.4 million metric tons of CO₂ equivalent GHG emissions by 2030 within the transport sector. To support emission reduction efforts, Bangladesh has introduced the Automobile Industry Development Policy 2021. This policy includes measures like tax incentives and financial support to encourage local production of electric cars, as well as the expansion of technology and infrastructure for fuel-efficient vehicles. The country aims to promote the adoption of electric vehicles, spanning two-, three-, and four-wheelers, as a means to attain its emission reduction objectives. Local production of lithium batteries and a transition to electric vehicles are anticipated to play a crucial role in achieving Bangladesh's emission reduction targets, as experts within the industry suggest.
