This panel features Polestar, Volvo Cars, and SSAB discussing sustainability and how the industry is moving towards a greener model. The panel stresses there is still more to be done and going forwards there needs to be a holistic approach to whole-of-vehicle manufacturing, encompassing sustainable factories running on renewable fuel, green alternatives to products that generate high lifecycle emissions like paint and steel, recycling and circularity of tricky components such as batteries, and – trickiest of all – greening the extensive global supply chain.

  • How will forthcoming regulation in Europe impact carmakers in the USA, Asia and beyond?
  • Where are the low-hanging fruits and easy wins? • What are the game-changing innovations that can move the dial?
  • How can the industry drive buy-in across the manufacturing value chain?
  • What is customer demand for a genuinely sustainable vehicle?
