A good learning opportunity for anyone looking to make an industry switch into electric transportation: Why Circularity is a Key to Sustainable Mobility, a free online webinar from GreenBiz on December 16. Here’s the description:
The BMW Group is a leading premium car manufacturer with a clear path towards sustainable mobility. But what does that mean? Is the electrification of its vehicles the only thing that matters to achieve this goal? The company says that sustainable mobility is more than just emission-free: Circular economy is the way to go, to rethink operation, reduce primary materials, reuse fabrics, and recycle leftovers. With good partners on this way towards a real sustainable automaker, the BMW Group is cooperating with BASF, the German chemical company on various of these action fields. Both have achieved significant results already.
In this conversation you’ll learn how the company is addressing such critical issues as:
- Sourcing of critical materials
- Circularity as strategic approach
Joel Makower, Chairman & Co-founder, GreenBiz Group
- Alissa Kendall, Professor, Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, UC Davis
- Thomas Becker, Vice President, Sustainability, Mobility, BMW Group
- Christoph Jaekel, Head of Corporate Sustainability, BASF
