Sustainable Development and EM-TECH

We believe that sustainable development is the key to building a better future for ourselves and future generations. Today we are sharing with you the SDGs, the EM-TECH activities are contributing to:

• SDG12 Responsible Consumption and Production
• SDG9 Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure
• SDG11 Sustainable Cities and Communities
• SDG8 Decent Work and Economic Growth
• SDG13 Climate Action

Especially Objective 4 is directed towards the circularity solutions for in-wheel and on-board motor technologies by:
• Incorporation of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodologies in the motor design optimization
• Implementation of Life Cycle Cost (LCC) assessment methodologies over the supply chain to obtain the unit cost in €/kW for the EM-TECH motor and drive solutions
• Improvements and updates of the LCA / LCC methodologies taking into account re-manufacturing and recycling of the components and critical raw materials
• Significant reduction of the use of rare earth resources in the EM-TECH machines and adoption of recycled PMs as a viable circularity solution
