A debate around net zero emissions has taken place online.

The event was organised by Iveco and Shell.

In addition, it involved experts and thought leaders from other industry figures.

For example, contributions came from Deloitte, the International Road Transport Union (IRU) and FTI Consulting. 

Specifically, the goal was to decide the best pathway to decarbonise road transport.

Furthermore, the role of LNG and Bio-LNG was also discussed.

The debate was live streamed and is now available via the Iveco Live Channel.

Iveco and Shell share a common goal to decarbonising road transport and net zero emissions.  

Therefore, the duo were keen to join forces with other transport-related companies.

The panellists focused on the need for a wider adoption of cleaner energy sources.

In addition, they discussed developments in vehicle efficiency, hydrogen and electric propulsion.

Luca Sra, Iveco’s COO, highlighted the company’s commitment to be fossil-free by 2040. 

In addition, he anticipated the EU carbon neutrality target by 10 years.

“At Iveco we have taken the air quality and climate change challenge with a sense of urgency,” he explained. 

“Decarbonizing the transport industry is not simply necessary, but it is also possible. 

“To do so, all the stakeholders in the biomethane value chain need to join forces to support the further development of the technology.” 

Furthermore, he suggested greater use of biomethane to bring down CO2 levels in trucks.

Later in proceedings, the panel discussed regulatory aspects and economics of gas trucks. 

Then, they turned their attention to infrastructure, specifically for Bio-LNG production.

Finally, the panel discussion considered the importance of collaboration. 

Specifically, it looked at different ecosystem companies to enable the decarbonisation of transport. 

Also, there was a call to action to support the transition to LNG and Bio-LNG on the path to sustainability.
