A coalition of 14 companies involved in transportation, raw materials, certifications, finance, electricity, to name a few, has launched an ambitious 7 point plan for 2021 , with the aim of starting the study and experimentation of more sustainable forms of mobility and reducing the climatic impact of transport and logistics, as M. Duvelleroy tells us.
Launched at the end of 2019, the "Coalition for the Energy of the Future" aims to accelerate the development of future energy and technologies to support new green mobility models and reduce the impact of transport and logistics on climate change, announcing the first goals to be achieved this year.
2021 will be a pivotal year for the Coalition and its intersectoral working groups with 7 projects to develop:
The 14 companies will continue to work closely in the coming months to develop new concrete projects that go in the direction of the fight against climate change.
Airbus, Bureau Veritas and PSA International join the "Coalition for the Energy of the Future"
2021 also marks the entry into the Coalition of three international companies, recognized worldwide for their involvement in the study and implementation of technological innovations:
Airbus, international reference in the aerospace sector and pioneer of sustainable aviation
Bureau Veritas, world leader in testing, inspection and certification,
PSA International, a maritime transport group, world leader and trusted partner for freight activities.
Join AWS, Carrefour, CMA CGM Group, Cluster Maritime Français, Crédit Agricole CIB, ENGIE, Faurecia, Michelin, Schneider Electric, Total and Wärtsilä in the Coalition .
Together, they will bring additional resources and talents to the group to meet the challenge of tomorrow's sustainable transport and logistics.
"Airbus has a leading role to play in achieving sustainable aviation," said Jean-Brice Dumont, Executive Vice President Engineering, Airbus. "We are convinced of the advantages that joint initiatives can bring in the search for innovative solutions to reduce C02 emissions in our sector, because we know that this challenge requires a collective effort.
We believe this coalition will promote the development of creative projects with effective results that will pave the way for new mobility models across the industry. "
According to Matthieu de Tugny, President of Bureau Veritas Marine and Offshore, “Innovative projects and joint development programs will certainly be vital to make sure we are ready for the future.
The diverse stakeholders and experience of this coalition certainly give real power to the shipping industry and supply lines to develop the innovative solutions we need.
This is a collective approach and all our efforts must absolutely be linked to support new green transport models ".
Mr TAN Chong Meng, CEO of PSA International, states: “PSA is proud to be part of the Coalition, which is in line with our mission to enable more ecological logistical choices for everyone, working with qualified partners.
We are excited to help develop future energies and technologies and to do our part to collectively create a more sustainable future for transport and trade " .
With these additional members, the Coalition continues to gather key market leaders in different sectors and pursues its mission to accelerate the development of energy and new technologies, supporting new low-carbon models to achieve the goal of zero emissions in transport and logistics.
