Did you know that over 54% of all new cars sold in Norway in 2020 were battery electric vehicles (EVs). The Norwegian national ambition is that all new cars sold by 2025 should be zero-emission (electric or hydrogen).

Redesigning cities to promote sustainable and safer forms of transport must start from the top. Norway serves as an exemplary model for widespread adoption of EV's, achieved through a combination of smart incentives, infrastructure, and benevolent conditions.

DMI applauds Norway for becoming world #1 on EV mobility, and invited the following for a seminar on Clubhouse to discuss the successful model of EV adoption in Norway.

Ola Elvestuen is a Norwegian politician for the Liberal Party. He served as Minister of Climate and Environment from 2018 to 2020. Elvestuen is a member of the Norwegian Parliament and served as leader of the Energy and Environment Committee since 2013.

Jasmeet Khurana manages the mobility decarbonization project at the World Business Council for sustainable development. As an energy transition professional, Jasmeet has over a decade of experience in fostering ambitious business actions with a focus on development of renewable energy in India.

-  Dhivik Ashok is a pioneer in the EV space of India, with a strong understanding of battery space and what works in India. He is founder of the company Go GreenBOV.

Jan Tore Gjøvik is an eMobility educator and advisor in Norway. His wide experiences in the fast growing Norwegian EV market gives him unique insight in the electric cars domain.

On episode 10 of the DMI Podcast, we have two experts in this field, research Director at NUPI, Ole Jacob Sending and Director of climate, energy and the environment at Norad, Stig Traavik.

Eradicating all forms of poverty continues to be one of humanity's greatest challenges. China has lifted 600 million people out of poverty since the 1980s, and according to the UN, India lifted 271 million people out of poverty between 2006 and 2016. During this conversation, we discuss "common, but differentiated responsibilities" and what Biden and Harris mean for climate, poverty and cooperation in the world. We also look at the sustainability goals and how international cooperation to save the world will be affected by disagreement and rivalry between great powers. Talking about poverty without talking about the task of business is not possible.

A big thank you to the 40+ who attended this seminar.
