Porsche launches ideas competition for sustainable mobility
‘Mobility for a Better World’ is an ideas competition at the intersection of technology, mobility and sustainability asking how visions for a sustainable future could look. Creative ideas and solutions, regardless of their degree of maturity, can now be submitted in the four categories of ‘People’, ‘Wheels’, ‘Cities’ and ‘Trust’ via an application form on Porsche's technology blog: www.medium.com/next-level-german-engineering.
For the ‘Mobility for a Better World’ competition, the Stuttgart-based sports car manufacturer has won renowned support. The university partner is CODE Berlin, a private and completely new university for the digital pioneers of tomorrow. APX, the accelerator of Porsche and Axel Springer, represents founder and growth expertise, supporting start-ups in the early stages of their company foundation and accelerating their development. The Porsche Digital Lab focuses on testing new technology with a focus on Artificial Intelligence (AI), blockchain and the “Internet of things”. The media partner of the ideas competition for sustainable mobility is EDISON, the platform for new mobility and smart living.
A responsible approach to people, the environment and society along the value chain, from suppliers to product recycling, is fundamental for Porsche and anchored in its corporate strategy. The aim is to introduce measures over the entire product lifecycle that will increase the company's added value, while taking ecological and social responsibility into account. It is important for Porsche to continuously reduce the negative environmental impact of its business processes and products. Detailed information on sustainability management and the company's strategy, as well as on the aspects of stakeholder dialogue and key figures, can be found in the current Annual Report and Sustainability Report of Porsche AG and on the Porsche Newsroom.
For the first time, Porsche is the main partner of re:publica in Berlin - one of the most important conferences for the digital society. Together with the Porsche Digital Lab Berlin, the APX accelerator, CODE University, HABA Digitalwerkstatt, the start-up Robonetica and the Porsche competition for developers ‘Porsche NEXT OI Competition’, the sports car manufacturer is seeking dialogue to shape the future.
