Take Away from Environmental Footprint Series: Business and Environmental Sustainability in Transportation Sector Covering Road, Sea and Air

On September 24th we continued our Environmental Footprint Series on the topic of Business and Environmental Sustainability in Transportation Sector Covering Road, Sea and Air. As our guests we were lucky to have none other than Jun Ma, President at Volvo (China) Investment Co., Ltd, Roger Strevens, Vice President of Global Sustainability at Wallenius Wilhelmsen and Anders Wahlström, General Manager & Chief Representative Greater China at SAS. With their experiences they shared their respective perspectives, and the webinar ended with a panel discussion moderated by Östen Ekengren, Executive Vice President at IVL-Swedish Environmental Research Institute.

Question that were discussed include:
1. What are the main activities that is needed to make it happened with the goal of 100% fossil free 2030?
2. What is needed to be able to introduce large scale use of SAF and later on electric driven aeroplanes with ambitious goals for 2030?
3. What do you see as the critical elements for successfully meeting the decarbonisation challenge in shipping?
4. To solve the problems we have discussed here you need partners and cooperation, how important is China and Chinese companies in your work to reach the ambitious goals you have for 2030?
