    Virtual Discussion Forum

    The Biden administration’s commitment to US climate change policy, combined with the EU’s emphasis on green investment as part of COVID-19 recovery and the UK’s decision to ban the sale of new combustion engine vehicles from 2030, all point to this being a key priority across advanced economies in the coming years.

    What incentives and infrastructure do governments need to put in place to overcome consumer concerns and achieve an electric revolution that is affordable, achievable and accessible to all in the coming decade?

    We invite you to a discussion of these priority issues for government, industry and consumers.

    Panel speakers include:

    • Rodney Slater, Partner, Squire Patton Boggs and Former US Secretary of Transportation
    • Mike Hawes, Chief Executive, Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders
    • Fiona Howarth, Chief Executive, Octopus EV

    Tony Reed, EMEA chair of the global Corporate Practice, will introduce the speakers and Matthew Kirk, international affairs advisor, will host the discussion.

    As usual, questions will be invited from the audience before and during this discussion, and we are really hoping as many of you as possible can join.

    The program is pending 1.0 hour of CLE in New York. If you require another jurisdiction, please email Robin Hallagan.
