17 November 2023, Bologna Fiere

A day to remember: On November 17th 2023 the first FAAS Sustainability Day took place, an event organized by FAAS – Forum on Automotive Aftermarket Sustainability in Bologna, within the framework of Futurmotive – Expo & Talks.

With over 100 participants coming from all over the world, FAAS Sustainability day was the occasion for the entire automotive and aftermarket ecosystem industry to gather together and discuss on the central topic of the sector debate, in a full day of panel discussions and presentations led by industry and organisations’ representatives. 

The agenda was led by prominent panels and presentations from organisations such as Bosch, LKQ, Fraunhofer Institute, and many others, focusing on vital topics and challenges while highlighting the innovations necessary to achieve net-zero and other sustainability objectives.
Participants had the opportunity to network with their peers, valued customers, trusted suppliers, and innovative start-ups from across Europe and beyond. Through these connections, we aimed to foster lasting connections and offer opportunities to discover innovative solutions.
