This report presents a preliminary identification of the environmental and social impacts of electric bicycles and kick-scooters sharing systems in the Brazilian market. It explores the environmental and social impacts of vehicle components, mainly related to batteries. In this way, it can be used as a repository of information and analysis and can support policy makers
and agents involved in the implementation of urban micro-mobility products and services.
The execution of this report was possible with the support of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, executing agency for the German Cooperation for Sustainable Development, as well as institutional partners, such as the Ministry of Economy of Brazil. In addition, we would like to thank the operator Tembici, who supported the project, and professionals from the electric mobility market interviewed, listed in the Appendix.
