The first part of the day on June 8 will feature the participation of important public sector actors from Colombia and Ecuador, who will discuss the progress made in territorial planning linked to sustainable transportation through the panel “The revolution of sustainable mobility in Colombian cities.”

In addition, a group of representatives of important companies such as Jaguar, General Motors, Volvo, Porsche and Renault will participate in the panel “The Transition of the Colombian Automotive Sector Towards Electric Vehicles“, and will show the present and future of public and private transportation in the country.

Representatives from General Motors, VG Mobility and the British Embassy in Colombia will shed light on the interaction between the different sectors involved.

Summit

Decarbonization and ESG factors

It is impossible to talk about sustainable mobility without taking into account essential aspects that are closely related to it. Therefore, Latam Green, the largest sustainability community in Latin America, has prepared for the attendees of the “Latam Mobility: Colombia“, three panels that will cover corporate decarbonization, by sectors, and environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) factors in the second part of the day on June 9.

The panel “Decarbonization Strategies for Corporations in Colombia” will feature the companies Grupo Argos, Grupo ISA and Nutresa, who will share with those present the progress, projections and challenges to promote the reduction of emissions at the corporate level, a key aspect to achieve sustainability goals.

This will be followed by the panel “ESG Criteria: The Opportunity for Banks and Investment Funds to Immerse in Sustainability” where representatives of Bancolombia, Aon Andina, SGS, FDN, Sura Investment Management and BBVA Colombia will discuss their strategies to comply with one of the pillars of decarbonization, ESG factors.

And to close the second day, the companies Atlas, SGS, Engie and Celsia, together with the Ministry of Mines and Energy, will explain their points of view on a complex topic, through the panel “Transport, Energy, Mining and Industry, Key Sectors for Decarbonization in Colombia“.

In this way, Invest in Latam, through its Latam Mobility and Latam Green initiatives, will begin its tour of the continent in Colombia, with Chile and Mexico as next destinations.
