Interview with Hervé Le Treut, climatologist

  • In order to support the Group’s shaping of its sustainable and profitable growth, the Chairman of the Managing Board is already engaged in a dialogue with experts from civil society.
  • Among the 7 mega trends that will shape the future of mobility, the first one is the Climate Change (Energy and the Environment): an interview with Hervé Le Treut, climatologist and co-author of the 5th IPCC report.
  • This will be followed by further discussions on the other mega trends: Customer Behaviour, Market Divergence, Sharing, Connectivity, Autonomy and Digital Transformation.



Carlos Tavares: "The whole lifestyle of the Western society needs to change. What the companies can bring to this is the technology that makes a low carbon society be desirable, safe and secure."

Hervé Le Treut: "The pressure of the society will be indexed on the pressure of the climate itself. There is a challenge to help people understand what options are. The scientific community has a big role to play."


About the "Climate Change" trend:

The automotive industry is committed to reduce greenhouse gases at a rate of tightening standards that must preserve freedom of movement.

Projections: around 25% of vehicles sold in 2030 will be 100% electric or plug-in hybrids (IHS worldwide projection), vs <1% in 2016.
