29. - 30. Nov 2022 | Bad Nauheim, Germany
Sustainability in Automotive Production
The set of final goals is clear and generally agreed upon:
- zero emissions from automotive production sites
- climate gas neutrality across the entire vehicle life and vehicle production chain, from the mining of raw materials to the vehicle’s fate at its end-of-life
- environmentally friendly sourcing of all materials used
What is less clear is the specific routes and timelines to reach these goals.
This is what the new Automotive Circle Networking Event on Sustainability in Automotive Production aims to address, in an annual network meeting where relevant experts and key decision makers are invited to share their views on the change towards a more sustainable automotive future and to exchange technical, non-competitive information on advancements and challenges in the development and implementation of sustainability measures in the automotive industry, all this in an inspiring, discussion-stimulating setting.
The event will feature invited contributions only, by automotive OEMs, their suppliers as well as research institutions, on topics such as
- OEM and supplier sustainability strategies, addressing both product-related issues and on-site production processes
- Important special cases: climate-neutral sourcing of steel, aluminium, plastics, concrete
- Regulations and framework programs worldwide; sustainability evaluation systems
- Circular economy approaches and solutions
- Downgrading strategies; use of biobased materials
- Sustainability- or recyclability-adapted vehicle construction
- Optimal resource efficiency of all vehicle materials, production consumables and technologies
