Green transition in Automotive

Sustainability targets in the automotive industry have sparked a technology revolution in electric vehicles and energy transition.

How can OEMs prioritize sustainability and grow?

The pandemic has accelerated a shift in values: cleaner air and greater sustainability are recognized as both urgent and achievable. Evolving into a responsible organization and prioritizing sustainability are key imperatives for success. And original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) can drive value and impact by combining digital and sustainability.

OEMs are leveraging learnings and capabilities from other industries, such as Energy, Utilities and Software & Platforms to radically reduce their impact on the planet.

The automotive industry has a remarkable opportunity to create more affordable, energy efficient and convenient solutions.

Optimizing in silos is no longer an option: Accenture and the World Economic Forum are proposing a five-level taxonomy towards the circular car.

Practical benefits of this industry-wide evolution

Dual challenges

By 2030, global demand for mobility is set to increase by 70%. At the same time, the automotive sector must reduce carbon emissions by at least 50%.

A delicate balance

New industry solutions—like enhanced fleet electrification and seamless charging—will help balance the need for mobility and sustainability.

A three-pronged win

The e-mobility revolution can significantly reduce resource consumption while accelerating recovery from the pandemic and supporting growth.
