Looking at the bigger picture
Key takeaways from world's first E-Mobility and Circular Economy conference in TokyoTokyo, )
Delegates have spent 3 days sharing new ways to meet the challenges of global urbanisation and environmental protection to build a sustainable society for the future generations. They have exchanged about the way the new concepts of transport and urban mobility have begun changing mindsets and influencing policy worldwide.
From material extraction and product design, to collection and recycling and remanufacturing of mobility-related products, this conference asked many of the crucial questions that industry needs to answer in order for e-mobility to be compatible with the circular economy and the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Specialists from Asia, Europe and the United States took a critical look at their countries’ progress, challenges and opportunities. All agreed that we have to create new value that is of significance to society and that this must take account of such critical issues such as the increasing demand for natural resources, energy efficiency, infrastructure investment, waste as a product, mobility as a service, carbon footprint reduction, the impact of legislation, the pace of innovation and evolving consumer expectations.
