Lundstedt to lead ACEA Commercial Vehicle Board for 2016

The Commercial Vehicle Board of Directors of the European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA) has elected Martin Lundstedt, President and CEO of Volvo Group, as its new Chairman for 2016.

Mr Lundstedt takes over the chairmanship from Henrik Henriksson, CEO of Scania Trucks.

Lundstedt: “I am honoured to lead ACEA’s commercial vehicle activities this year, when our top priority remains the further reduction of CO2 emissions.”

“Our industry will continue to take its responsibility for reducing CO2 emissions from new vehicles,” Mr Lundstedt explained. “At the same time, we will go on working with all relevant stakeholders in the transport sector to identify all aspects affecting CO2 emissions from heavy-duty vehicles. By joining forces we will have the possibility to unlock the full potential of CO2 reduction – and will be able to contribute to ambitious climate goals.”

Mr Lundstedt will speak on this topic at an ACEA event entitled ‘Reducing CO2 from road transport together’ on 16 February in Brussels.
