Mission: Identify opportunities to accelerate the transition to electronic vehicles and find solutions to existing challenges.
Context: As of 2020, sales of EV’s accounted for 4.2 per cent of the global market share, translating to around 0.5 per cent of cars on the road. Given analyses show that EVs emit around 64 per cent less CO2 than their traditional combustion engine counterparts, these rates are nowhere near what is required to meet Paris Agreement emissions targets. Indeed, with transportation accounting for 29 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions, an EV revolution is an urgent necessity.
This Boardroom will be a platform for senior leaders from the industry to identify the next steps required, from legislation on phasing out fossil fuel engines, funding for improved battery technology and expanding infrastructure.
