Mats Bredborg is the Head of Customer Cluster Utility for Volvo Construction Equipment. In this episode, he takes the team through the reality of electric vehicles in the construction space, and what changes we can expect to see in the future while sharing Volvo’s vision for a sustainable humanity.
Mats explores how the future of automotive fuels is evolving in three key ways, with hydrogen engines being developed for larger vehicles, electric vehicles already on the rise, and synthetic fuels providing an alternative to combustion engines. These changes are disrupting the industry in line with more sustainable practices.
Specifically, Volvo’s commitment to reaching net zero emissions by 2050 is a science-based strategy that involves a complete shift towards electric vehicles for their construction equipment portfolio by 2040. This commitment is based on a detailed understanding of their current emissions and the proactive response required to achieve sustainability goals.
Meanwhile, transparency is also becoming increasingly important for companies adopting sustainable targets, both for employees and customers. Customers must know what actions a company is taking to reach net zero emissions, and for employees to understand the company’s targets, empowering them to represent this wider movement.
