Volvo Group called for increased dialogue between policymakers and the industry around the future of mobility at its annual Mobility Transformation Forum in Brussels on May 23. The event showcased Volvo Group’s continued investment in fossil-free propulsion technologies, services, and business solutions, and highlight the need for investment in infrastructure and charging capabilities across Europe.

Alongside panel discussions and talks, Volvo’s battery electric, hydrogen-powered and AI technologies were on display, demonstrating Volvo Group’s industry-leading ability to deliver a net zero-emission future across multiple transport sectors – from long haul distribution to inner-city, last-mile deliveries.

Martin Lundstedt, President, and CEO of Volvo Group, believes that the green and digital transformation requires increased cross-sector collaboration among energy providers, logistics companies, vehicle manufacturers, and policymakers at both the EU and national levels.

The industry must prioritize investments in innovative and sustainable technologies and processes with support from policymakers and other players across the value chain. The ability to collaborate effectively is vital in achieving our shared aspiration of establishing a mobility ecosystem that is both sustainable and inclusive, thereby enabling future generations to thrive. We stand at a pivotal point in history and leaders must step forward if we are to make this a reality,” said Martin Lundstedt.

The Mobility Transformation Forum program kicked off with an opening speech by Ebba Busch, Deputy Prime Minister of Sweden & Swedish Minister for Energy, Business, and Industry. Attendees looked forward to insightful panel debates, fireside chats, and an exclusive showcase of Volvo’s innovative sustainable transport solutions.

Speakers at the event included Pascal Canfin MEP, Chair of the Environment Committee, Clara de la Torre, Deputy Director General, Clima, Martin Lundstedt, President and CEO of Volvo Group, Anna Borg, CEO of Vattenfall, Oscar de Bok, CEO of DHL, Timo Kiiha, Head of Corporate Lending Northern Europe for EIB, and Lars Stenqvist CTO of Volvo Group.

The event provided media with an opportunity to learn how we are driving the industry forward to become the first and only world region to go fully fossil-free by 2040 and interview key stakeholders from both industry and policy-making bodies.
