SAFRA has just joined the European Alliance for Clean Hydrogen, in order to support the ambitious project of deployment of hydrogen technologies and the implementation of a decarbonation strategy by 2030. This signature confirms SAFRA’s commitment to the fight against global warming and air pollution, through the development of sustainable mobility solutions, with the range of electric and hydrogen buses produced by this French company.
In July 2020, the European Commission announced the EU Hydrogen Strategy and the launch of the European Clean Hydrogen Alliance. By establishing the Alliance, the EU aims to strengthen its leadership position in the rapidly developing hydrogen field, which will help it achieve its goal of carbon neutrality by 2050. The European Clean Hydrogen Alliance, which brings together more than 200 industrial, national and local public authorities, civil society and other stakeholders, aims to launch an investment program and support the intensification of the hydrogen value chain across Europe.
Vincent Lemaire, President of the SAFRA Group, comments on this initiative: “Our historical activity is a perfect example of this commitment. As a specialist in mass transit equipment, SAFRA combines its historic business of extending the life of vehicles with an innovative business through the construction of a range of clean buses. We work daily for a more sustainable mobility. Socially, improving public transportation is a key issue in the face of deteriorating air quality, urban congestion and climate change. With our Businova, we offer the widest range of products on the market, up to and including the hydrogen solution, which is considered to be the most virtuous from an environmental point of view, and certainly the most promising economically in France and for export. We are proud, as a French manufacturer, to be able to participate in the creation of this complete hydrogen value chain in Europe. This signature is also perfectly in line with our own sustainable development objectives.”
