SIAM advocates for sustainable mobility at the Viksit Bharat Conference

June 19, 2024 6:40 pm

The Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) hosted a landmark international conference titled Integrating Mission LiFE in the Automobile Industry: Transitioning Towards Viksit Bharat, aligning with the World Environment Day 2024 celebrations.

SIAM is leading the charge towards achieving carbon neutrality by 2070 and advancing the Viksit Bharat initiative by 2047 with several key decarbonisation initiatives. These include the electrification of mobility, promoting ethanol use in transportation, enhancing recycling practices, developing infrastructure for gas-based mobility, and fostering the hydrogen fuel ecosystem.

The event graced by the Chief Guest Tarun Kapoor, Advisor to the Prime Minister of India, featured a line-up of eminent speakers from government and industry leaders from India and around the world. Their insights were instrumental in discussions on sustainable mobility.

He said, “The government emphasises environmental preservation for a sustainable future, with EVs at the core. Our goal is to make India a manufacturing hub for electric vehicles, serving both domestic and global markets. Indian companies have immense potential to transform the country into a global EV leader. Most critically, we should find ways to move towards sustainable transportation without affecting any aspect of life.”
