Faurecia, a global leader in
areas of automotive seating, interior systems and clean mobility has partnered
with Clean Air Asia to explore effective technology solutions to improve air
quality and enhance industry awareness of clean city solutions. Clean Air Asia is
leading the regional mission for better air quality, and healthier, more
livable cities throughout Asia.
The collaboration will focus
on three key aspects across Asia:
• Clean Cities Initiative:
Utilising Clean Air Asia’s extensive regional air quality network and its years
of experience in guiding national and city-level air pollution reduction,
Faurecia will provide its leading air quality management solutions.
• Clean Fleets Initiative:
Faurecia will bring its expertise in eco-driving and emissions reduction
solutions to support Clean Air Asia’s Green Freight and Logistics Program,
which is at the forefront of the establishment of regional and national green
freight programs and initiatives.
• Communication: Faurecia and
Clean Air Asia will facilitate multi-stakeholder actions to manage air
pollution at the city level.
Effective air quality
management starts with robust monitoring that can provide reliable data for
risk assessment and prevention. Faurecia and Clean Air Asia are exploring the
possibility of providing such monitoring through sensors and software.
“The signing of the MOU with
Clean Air Asia today marks a new positive milestone to deepen the collaboration
in Asia we started three years ago,” said Christophe Schmitt, Executive Vice
President of Faurecia Clean Mobility. “As a global leader in Sustainable
Mobility, Faurecia has the clear objective of driving mobility and industry
towards zero emissions. As part of our constantly growing open innovation
ecosystem, the partnership with Clean Air Asia will enable us to achieve the
shared vision of reducing the environmental impact of air pollution,” he added.
“Through this cooperation, we
aim to help urban cities in Asia chart a cleaner, greener and more sustainable
industrial trajectory,” said Bjarne Pedersen, Executive Director of Clean Air
Asia. “Clean Air Asia boasts high-level expertise in air quality management.
The launch of this partnership with Faurecia will assist us in our aims to
promote the broader uptake of cleaner fuels, vehicles and freight technologies,
support more conducive transport strategies and policies, and encourage other
manufacturers to embark on more environmentally sound development,” he noted.
