Mobility, both at an individual and systemic levels, is intrinsically tied to the green energy transition.

The transport sector is one of the main consumers of fossil fuel, and hence is a major contributor to the total greenhouse gas (GHG) emission, accounting for 18% of total GHG emission as of 2015. The sustainability and electrification of transport is therefore one of the megatrends in mobility and is an important pillar to achieve its decarbonization.

The deployment of electric vehicles over the past decade was driven by ambitious government policies to reduce oil demand in transport, not least with a view to the environmental benefits of tackling air pollution and climate change. Reflecting the positive alignment of policy and industry, electric cars in many markets are subject to a host of incentives and regulatory efforts.

Nevertheless, industry disruptors often face policy hurdles and policy change can sometimes lag behind industry innovation. It is therefore clear that strengthening the cooperation between public and private actors across global markets is an essential step to effectively greening the future of mobility.

To facilitate this dialogue, AustCham Korea, in partnership with the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), is pleased to bring together policy and industry experts for a special Industry Round Table on 'The Future of Mobility'.

Taking place online between 10 am – 11:30 am KST on Thursday, July 15, 2021, the Round Table will feature presentations by Adeel Ahmad, Project Director, Intralink, Casey Hyun, Future Mobility Expert, Jeff Mannering, Managing Director, Audi Korea, and Eric Wang, Co-Founder and CEO, Wind Mobility. Sandra Park, Board Member at AustCham Korea, and Chief Representative of Woodside Energy Korea, will moderate the discussion.

Dr Kyung Nam Shin, GGGI Assistant Director-General and Head of Investment & Policy Solutions Division will provide introductory remarks for the session.

The event aims to share the experience of various industry representatives across the full spectrum of mobility.
