In this AMS Livestream Hour, we’ll share insights from automotive manufacturing experts and decisions makers on specific ways that they are reducing emissions, waste and energy in global production processes, as well as how they are adapting overall manufacturing and sourcing strategies to account for full lifecycle environmental impacts from sourcing to production and recycling.
You will hear from Scania’s head of Global Scania Production System (SPS) Office, Mathias Wijkström, about how the truckmaker is accelerating its targets to reduce emissions and waste in production, how sustainability in manufacturing is playing a significant role in the company’s electrification strategy and its decision to build a new battery factory, as well as how Scania is adapting R&D and production to optimise the circular economy.
You will also hear from Hugo Da Gama Campos, who leads on sustainable development for flat products at ArcelorMittal Europe. Learn how the company is is implementing smart carbon plans to decarbonise steel production and is investing in more responsible steel processes, supporting automotive customers in their circular economy objectives.
Join this show to learn and ask questions about the technologies, investments and values that are making automotive manufacturing and materials greener and, in many cases, more competitive.
