5th International Conference: Sustainability and the Automobile (2008)

Madrid, September 29 to 30, 2008. MAPFRE Auditorium

The Eduardo Barreiros Foundation and MAPFRE held their Fifth International Conference: Sustainability and The Automobile. The focus of this conference was sustainable development in the automotive century. The mobility provided by the car is an important factor in the development of nations, but it also consumes a significant share of oil reserves and has a major impact on the environment, with emissions such as CO2 that affect air quality and significantly contribute to global warming.
Sustainable mobility must allow for the development transportation while having the lowest possible impact on society and the environment. This will require not only technological changes but also changes in human behavior and governmental policies.
