Topic of speech:
Reducing the carbon footprint of transport and logistics
Kallionpää will leads us through a scenario of decarbonising transport. Finland has set an ambitious target of reducing CO2 emissions from transport by 50% by 2030. Can it be achieved and what has to be done and what should be done to achieve it? What is the role of smart mobility services in this? The answers can be found in improving the efficiency of transport system, vehicle energy efficiency and replacing fossil fuels with renewable s. It is a huge challenge, but answering it can make our lives better.
