PARIS—Thirty years from now, the world will be drastically different. And while it's difficult to discern which technologies and big ideas will have emerged to lead us there, the consensus seems to be that the future will be more sustainable.
Michelin, through its Movin'On Summit, has committed to exploring mobility technologies, innovations and solutions on the horizon. The four-day event—hosted virtually with limited in-person attendance June 1-4 from locations in Paris, Singapore and Montreal—is designed as a forum for industry leaders and stakeholders to have conversations, network and debate about what future mobility holds.
To help kick off the summit, a panel of chief executives, including Michelin CEO Florent Menegaux, focused on the road to sustainable mobility and debated what it will take for the world to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
Julie Sweet, CEO of Accenture, a global professional services company with expertise in digital, cloud and security, said the world is at a significant crossroads when it comes to taking action on sustainability.
"Let me just start with saying that we need to move from collective awareness to collective action," Sweet said. "The question now is what does collective action take?"
