Groupe PSA (Paris:UG):


Philippe Bihouix declares about sharing economy: "The use of raw materials and scarce resources has not decreased. Indeed, gains in efficiency of products are counterbalanced by an increase in consumption. This is true for mobility. With carpooling offers, for example, people travel more. Carsharing is a relevant solution for commuters, when they cannot avoid moving, but it is only part of the solution."

Carlos Tavares: "We are facing a lot of challenges, including the wise use of materials, and we have to come up with several solutions to address them. Even if Groupe PSA makes a lot of efforts in terms of mobility services, recycling, zero-emission vehicles, etc., the automotive industry must be part of a radical change in the way of life in our modern societies."
