David Tulauskas, director of sustainability at General Motors, talks with Ian Welsh about how GM plans to achieve its "zero crashes, zero emissions, zero congestion" goals. They debate the rise in consumer demand for ride-sharing and how this is disrupting traditional personal transportation models.
Tulauskas outlines why he thinks “the future is electric”, and why this raises new supply chain risks for the automotive sector as it sources more conflict minerals. He also explains how the industry is learning from other commodities as it develops more-sustainable rubber value chains.
Listeners please note that David Tulauskas moved on from his role at General Motors at the end of December 2018.
