Automotive sector organisations launch joint vision for the transition pathway of the mobility ecosystem
Employees and consumers should be at the heart of the transformation of the automotive sector
In January 2022, the European Commission published its vision for the transition of the mobility ecosystem. This document includes a range of scenarios for transforming the automotive, rail and shipping industries – encouraging synergies between these sectors.
In response, the European Association of Automotive Suppliers (CLEPA), the European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA), the European Council for Motor Trades and Repairs (CECRA) and the European Tyre and Rubber Manufacturers’ Association (ETRMA) have published their ‘10-point action plan for a resilient, innovative, sustainable and digital mobility ecosystem’.
Employees and consumers should be at the heart of the transformation of the automotive sector, the associations argue. The environmental and digital implications of the Green Deal should be key pillars of the transition pathway, not forgetting recent supply chain disruptions caused by COVID-19 and the war in Ukraine.
Key considerations for the transition pathway in the mobility ecosystem
• Manage the technological transition to zero and carbon-neutral mobility
• Keep mobility affordable, especially considering growing energy, materials and fuel costs
• Manage the structural change in automotive regions
• Provide a specific pathway for the transformation of the labour force
