DELIVERING A SUSTAINABLE END-TO-END CARBON FOOTPRINT FOR EVS
Electric vehicles have indeed come a long way! As per estimates by the International Energy Association, the number of EVs on the road will hit 125 million by 2030.1 EVs are now available across the affordability spectrum and have become truly mainstream—delivering unique value propositions for different market segments and enabling the evolution of the EV ownership experience.
But to realize the goal of zero carbon emissions, the important task is to enable a completely green supply chain built upon the fundamentals of a sustainable circular economy for EVs. This starts with gathering high quality information on the battery state of health via precision monitoring, which enables informed decision-making throughout the life cycle of the battery, including a seamless transition into the battery second life practical use cases.
Explore this conversation in which ADI, Toyota, Ford, and Mahindra jointly deliver thought leadership on a sustainable supply chain for EVs. The session brings together electrification experts from across market segments and geographies to share their perspective on how to jointly address a truly green future of mobility.

Technology Advancements to Make EV Ownership Sustainable
Historically, EVs have been at the extreme ends of the affordability spectrum but now advancements in technology have enabled them to become truly mainstream, which is making democratization of sustainability possible. The EV renaissance is seen as analogous to mobile phones—similar to how advancements in mobile phone technology enabled a robust secondhand market and streamlined material recycling, car companies are shifting focus to complete mobility solutions and are re-strategizing their relationship with customers to enable recycle and reuse best practices.
Enabling a Sustainable Circular Economy
In the next five years, we are going to have five times as many EVs on the road as today. This presents exciting opportunities to re-utilize, reuse, and recycle various elements of the EVs—including batteries, materials, and chemicals. In this scenario, a technology provider, such as ADI, can utilize its presence across multiple end applications to holistically think about the situation and create innovation driven bridges across ecosystem players.
