At this year’s IAA press conference, Continental CEO Dr Elmar Degenhart presented solutions regarding the most urgent challenges facing the automotive industry. Mr Degenhart is optimistic that the automotive industry can achieve CO2-neutrality across the entire supply chain by 2050. Specifically, the company has set the goal for itself to be CO2-neutral in all of its production processes by 2040. As a first step, Continental aims to procure its electricity exclusively from renewable sources at all of its worldwide production sites by the end of 2020.

For Continental, a CO2 neutral production constitutes part of the requisite healthy mobility ecosystem. The technology company will present numerous pioneering innovations at the IAA under the slogan of Mobility is the Heartbeat of Life. The innovations provide for the reduction of emissions, enhanced safety and greater connectivity and digitalization for more comfort and convenience as well as fewer accidents. In view of the weakening economic situation and the investments that are required for the mobility of the future and digitalization, Degenhart called on the German government to support the economy by reducing tax and duties for companies and consumers.

With its IAA slogan “Mobility is the Heartbeat of Life,” Continental is building on one conviction: There is no quality of life without mobility. Continental understands itself as an architect in this regard: “We are designing the healthy ecosystem of mobility. Healthy mobility is the opposite of doing without mobility. Healthy mobility is optimism in our future. It is clean, safe and connected. Our solutions help people and society to achieve a higher quality of life, faster progress, greater environmental protection, and more personal opportunities for the future. Our heart beats for this,” said Degenhart at the IAA, while explaining Continental’s mission for a positive transformation of mobility. He expressed that, for Continental only a healthy mobility ecosystem can sustainably meet any future mobility needs, enable long-term and profitable growth for companies, create attractive jobs and contribute to prosperity.

Mr Degenhart at the IAA, while he outlined the future mobility ecosystem said that “Future mobility will be climate-friendly, as well as economically and socially viable. Our aim in this is to have technologies that are both eco-efficient and socially acceptable. In this way, we protect not only the ecological climate, but the economic and social climates as well. To achieve this, we have to take all of these things into account right from the production stage.”
