The financial risk of Truckmakers’ slow electric vehicle transition and ineffective carbon emissions reporting.

The decarbonisation of the Heavy Duty Vehicles (HDV) sector will have profound effects on truck manufacturers and investor portfolios. The transition will start later than EVs, but is likely to be faster & more brutal, so investing in the laggards could be very wealth sapping. The starting gun has been sounded with the recently ratified HDV emissions regulations in the EU and US, which will force manufacturers to bring more electric HDVs to market by 2030.

Carbon Tracker will be joined by truck manufacturer Scania & the leading EU transport policy think tank Transport & Environment to discuss –

  • Who are the leaders & laggards in the transition to an electrified HDV fleet
  • What needs to happen to unlock the huge financial opportunity in the HDV sector presented by the energy transition
  • How emissions goals & accurate reporting will help reduce the financial risks to & the emissions profile of investor portfolios
  • Why indirect emissions (Scope 3) from truck manufacturers are a major financial risk
