Industry manufacturers are increasingly committing to energy efficiency and renewable energy, advanced vehicle technology and alternative use models ranging from extended-range electric cars to autonomous ride-sharing. What are these companies’ strategies for dealing with climate change in times of change, and what can others learn from this experience?
