Futurising podcast: The future of mobility by Brian Aranha

ArcelorMittal has launched a new group website, developed around the company’s purpose of ‘Inventing smarter steels for a better world’. The site showcases the role that steel can play in a future low-carbon, circular economy; outlines how ArcelorMittal is embracing technology developments to address trends that will shape the future; and demonstrates the critical role ArcelorMittal’s products and solutions play in supporting societal transformation, including future mobility.

A central pillar of the new website is its Smarter future section, which explores the future of steel and its role in a changing world. It includes four episodes from the first season of a new podcast series, Futurising’which features ArcelorMittal experts in conversation with a futurologist.

In the first podcast Brian Aranha, Head of strategy, CTO, R&D, CCM, global automotive, communications and corporate responsibility, talks to futurologist Tom Cheesewright about how mobility might be different in the future.
