08 Nov 2023
Reducing Manufacturing Emissions
Upcoming and existing legislation around the globe are defining targets for the sustainable development and manufacturing of new products, including vehicles.
Neither these legislation nor their targets however are necessarily fully aligned, resulting in several trade-offs and thus unnecessary industrial uncertainties and efforts.
As a latest example, mid of July, the first draft of the EU End of Life Vehicle Regulation (ELVR) has been published with the broad objective “to make the automotive sector circular, to maximize the efficient use of resources and to protect the environment”. 
The presentation will take a closer look into this upcoming piece of legislation while also analyzing the resulting trade-offs which may be a barrier for a successful achievement of the Green Deal objectives.
