Driving the future – a podcast series

Fueled by such factors as the climate crisis and the digital revolution, the automotive industry is transforming rapidly.

A typical automotive company today faces the task of transforming from a component manufacturer or assembler to a software and technology company, while also navigating electrification and the race to sustainability.

At the same time, the company may well be striving to become a mobility player, to move from a siloed economy towards an open, flexible shared partner ecosystem, and to reduce time to market by accelerating automation and efficiency.

And, of course, the company simultaneously needs to keep making cars, and to ensure that existing assets are still performant.

Challenges like these call for enterprise-wide agility coupled with rapid innovation.

Episode 35: Transitioning a market leader into a sustainable modern luxury brand in automotive

Emmanuelle Bischoffe-Cluzel, Vice President and Sustainability Lead for the global automotive industry at Capgemini, talks to two senior colleagues from Jaguar Land Rover: François Dossa, board member with responsibility for Strategy and Sustainability, and Director of Sustainability Andrea Debbane. The discussion looks at the practicalities of working toward net zero emissions by 2039, with a focus on the wider context of technological innovation, including, for example, the criticality of sustainability to luxury brands, and consumers’ evolving expectations about mobility.
