Carbon free mobility infrastructure: How Daimler, Bosch and Lufthansa want to be more sustainable – Ola Källenius (Daimler), Stefan Hartung (Bosch), and Carsten Spohr (Lufthansa)
At Daimler, Bosch and Lufthansa, climate protection will become even more strongly relevant over the next twenty years. All three companies have set themselves ambitious targets. For instance, Daimler is looking to establish its fleet of new cars as fully CO 2 -neutral by 2039, thereby anticipating the Paris Climate Goals. As early as 2030, the car manufacturer is aiming to be fully electric everywhere that market conditions will permit. But ambitious targets are just the start, as Daimler boss Ola Källenius knows: “We are past the decision-taking stage. Now it is about implementation and about picking up speed.”
On stage at IAA MOBILITY, Källenius is in discussion with Bosch CEO Stefan Hartung and Lufthansa CEO Carsten Spohr about the different challenges the companies are faced with as they strive for sustainability, and why they nevertheless see themselves as part of a shared mission. Together, they define the ingredients needed so that mobility is no longer at the expense of the climate in future, and engage with the question of how Europe, as an economic base, can assert its advantages in relation to innovation and sustainability in times of growing international competition.
