Type Lecture / discussion
Organizer WU (Vienna University of Economics and Business) Marketing & Communications

The Transport Sector Between Vision and Reality

This Event is organized by WU’s ​​Department of Global Business and Trade

Austria is committed to achieving carbon neutrality by 2040. For Austria to reach this target, it has to step up decarbonization efforts across all sectors, including transport and traffic. Even though necessary technologies have already been developed, it is still a long way to go until widespread adoption. Is mobility's net-zero transition still realistic? What organizational and legal requirements need to be met to achieve this goal? What happens to existing public transport fleets? We will be discussing how and when a state of net-zero carbon emissions can be achieved.

Lecture and moderation by:

Sebastian Kummer, Professor, Head of the Institute for Transport and Logistics Management at WU Vienna


Christian Kern, CEO European Locomotive Group

Wolfram Senger-Weiss, Chairman of the Gebrüder Weiss Management Board

Monika Unterholzner, Managing Director Wiener Lokalbahnen
