solutions for smart-cities and mobility

Mobility, sustainability and circular economy

Creating the cities of the future with a focus on quality of life and sustainability

The transformation of urban communities into smart-cities will see accelerated growth over this decade and is an opportunity for players in the public, private and social sectors. The new paradigms of community living, rooted in the concepts of mobility, sustainability and circular economy, are the catalyst for this change and the value capture of this transformation. At ISQ we already have solutions aimed at these concepts that help achieve this vision.
