Tailpipe dreams – what is a sustainable vehicle?

Thursday 29th March 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Is sustainability achievable in the Automotive sector?

Join the Advanced Propulsion Centre and Innovate UK as we debate how realistic it is that the automotive sector could eventually be entirely sustainable. We are excited to be joined by Jenifer Baxter, Head of Engineering Policy for the IMechE, as the compere for this event.

In March 2017, 250 members of the automotive industry joined the ‘Can we put the Z in EVs?’ debate at the Royal Institute. This event investigated the whole life environmental impacts of electric vehicles, with views from experts on recycling, infrastructure and natural resources, as well as automotive OEMs. A year on, we will be examining how the debate has moved on, advances in technology and how to regulate new ultra-low emission vehicles. We will also question how we measure sustainability, should the focus be on social, evironmental or economical sustainability? Can we really achieve sustainability from cradle to grave?
