Coast Autonomous, a self-driving vehicle technology company, announced today that the Global Forum on Human Settlements, with support from the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific and the Global One Belt One Road Association, presented Coast with its Global Model of Green Mobility Award for 2018. The award was presented to Coast in connection with the 2018 Annual Session of Global Forum on Human Settlements convened at the United Nations Conference Center, Bangkok, Thailand.
The Annual Session brought together mayors from cities across the world, including the mayors of Santa Monica, California, Quezon City in the Philippines, and Male in the Maldives, each of whom discussed the challenges facing their respective cities and their innovative approaches to meet those challenges and improve the quality of life for their citizens. The Session featured non-governmental organizations such as the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (whose representative gave a presentation on project finance for public-private partnerships) and the Habitat for Humanity (whose representative discussed sustainable urban infrastructure). The Session also included representatives from the private sector to discuss smart cities technologies, including autonomous rapid transit and the use of blockchain to improve the workability, livability, and sustainability of urban environments.
“We were honored and humbled to have received this prestigious award by the Global Forum,” said David M. Hickey, Chairman and CEO of Coast. “Coast builds community by connecting people with a mobility solution that put pedestrians first. Our self-driving vehicles are smarter, safer, and more convenient than existing modes of transportation at considerably lower costs. We would like to thank the Global Forum and its partners, the Thai Royal Family, the Government of Thailand and Thai people for their warmth and generosity.”
