Join this livestream on how vehicle manufacturers and suppliers are fast-tracking energy reduction, circular economy and greener materials to save costs and achieve decarbonisation goals, featuring experts from OEMs, SSAB and more. Thursday October 6 at 9.30 EST / 14.30 BST / 15.30 CEST
Decarbonising automotive manufacturing and supply chains is part of the long-term strategy of carmakers and suppliers, from improving efficiency, changing material mixes and body structures to implementing more renewable energy sources. However, rising energy costs have put the urgency of sustainable manufacturing into sharp focus: reducing waste and emissions will for OEMs in many regions be a matter of competitive advantage if not survival.
In the latest AMS Automotive Evolution Livestream, production leaders and experts from vehicle manufacturers, suppliers and steel producers will discuss how they are transitioning plants and value chains to be low carbon, circular and sustainable. It will feature the strategies from decision makers in production and supply chain, including how they are responding to spiking energy costs in manufacturing, and what the ramp up of electric vehicle and batteries will mean for sustainable production.
With the energy intensity around materials such as steel and aluminium, the livestream will also feature insights from steel producer SSAB on sustainable production and sourcing processes, as well as how it can help to create more lightweight, high efficiency material mixes and body-in-white.
To achieve sustainable production, OEMs and suppliers will in many cases need to redefine processes and technology – to build the green machine that will build green components, batteries and vehicles.
Learn more about how the industry is doing this in our exclusive livestream, including:
- Reducing energy and emissions through efficiency in production processes and equipment
- Increasing renewable energy sources for plants and across the value chain
- How to ensure EV battery and materials production is sustainable
- Implementing circular loops and recycling

Smarter steels for people and planet: Ensuring steel continues to be the world’s most used and versatile material is what drives us every day. With approximately 168,000 employees, we are more than just a company, we are a community. We are driven by an entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for excellence, never accepting that the limits of our material have been reached. We will continue to push boundaries, whether developing technologies to reduce the carbon footprint of steel, transforming the built environment with our new construction solutions, 3D printing automotive parts using steel powders or, through the adoption of artificial intelligence and advanced automation across our operations. This is what it takes to be the steel company of the future. Since ArcelorMittal company was founded, we have aimed to align all our activity against three values: sustainability, quality and leadership. Each of these values stands on a foundation of health and safety.
