Dear Mr. Fu, distinguished guests and peers,

付先生,各位尊敬的嘉宾、各位朋友:

Good morning and welcome to today’s China-Sweden Forum. I’m David Sweet from Volvo Car Asia Pacific and I feel so happy to be here today and meet all of you.

早上好!欢迎各位来到中瑞论坛,非常高兴今天能够在这里和大家见面。

First of all, I would like to extend my sincere congratulations on the opening of 2021 China Auto Forum. Of course, this is one of the most recognized platforms organized by CAAM (China Association of Automobile Manufactures) for technology display and knowledge exchanges for auto engineers and experts.

首先,请允许我对2021中国汽车论坛的开幕表示诚挚的祝贺。感谢中国汽车工业协会的组织,中国汽车论坛是我们业内最负盛名的平台之一,汽车工程师和行业专家们可以在此同聚一堂,互相展示技术、分享观点。

As we come back from the pandemic, the auto industry is also undergoing significant and profound changes. It brings us both new challenges and opportunities. As a company with its roots in Sweden, Volvo Cars is honored to co-host today’s China-Sweden forum for an in-depth exchange of views on a sustainable future of the whole industry and society.

随着我们从疫情中逐步回到正轨,汽车行业也在经历着重大而深刻的变革。这给我们带来了全新的挑战和机遇。作为一家来自瑞典的公司,沃尔沃汽车非常荣幸能够联合举办这次中瑞论坛,就整个汽车行业和全社会的可持续发展的未来进行深入探讨。

I hope that all of you will also be able to freely discuss and contribute your ideas to this topic afterwards.

也希望会后大家仍然可以就这个话题展开自由讨论,贡献您的真知灼见。

Environmental protection and sustainability are the cornerstones for our long-term growth. Actually Volvo Cars have an industry-leading heritage in sustainability.

环境保护和可持续发展是我们能够实现长期增长的基石。事实上,沃尔沃汽车在可持续发展方面拥有行业领先的悠久传统。

In 1972, we made our first environmental declaration at the UN’s first Environment Conference. In 1976, we made an extraordinary breakthrough by introducing our three-way catalytic converter with the Lambda sond sensor. In 2017, we became the first established auto maker to commit to all-out electrification.

1972年,在第一届联合国人类环境会议上,沃尔沃发布了第一份《环保宣言》。1976年,我们发明了具有划时代意义的带氧传感器的三元催化器,将汽车有害气体排放减少90%之多。2017年,我们成为首个提出全面电气化战略的汽车公司。

Our purpose is to provide freedom to move in a personal, safe and sustainable fashion. This viewpoint has led us to create many innovations and technological advances, and we will continue to do so in the future.

我们的企业宗旨,是以个性化、可持续和安全的方式,为所有人提供畅行无忧的出行方案。这一信念给我们带来了许多创新发明和技术进步,未来我们将继续将之发扬光大。

To address challenges in energy and environment, China’s President announced in 2020 that carbon emissions will begin to decline from 2030, carbon neutrality will be achieved by 2060. This sets the backdrop to make sustainability high on the agenda for the auto industry.

为了应对能源和环境方面的挑战,中国国家主席于 2020 年发布了2030年碳达峰、2060年碳中和的目标。这为中国汽车行业把可持续发展提上议程奠定了基础。

As early as 2019, we announced one of the most ambitious plan in the industry to become a climate-neutral company by 2040. Developments since then show that our plan has been forward looking and ambitious.

早在 2019 年,我们就发布了汽车行业最为雄心勃勃的环保计划之一,即力求在2040年之前将公司发展成为全球气候零负荷标杆企业。之后的发展表明,我们的计划具有充分的前瞻性和进取性。

To achieve our ambition, our efforts go beyond addressing tailpipe emissions through complete electrification. We also strive to tackle carbon emissions in our manufacturing network, operations, supply chain and through recycling and reuse of materials. Besides, we want to become a recognized leader in ethical and responsible business.

为了实现这一宏伟目标,我们不仅仅是通过全面电气化来解决尾气排放问题。我们还致力于解决我们的制造网络、运营、供应链以及材料回收和再利用过程中的碳排放问题。此外,我们希望成为道德和负责任的商业领域公认的领导者。

In March this year, we moved a step forward by offering a timetable on full electrification, business model innovation and climate neutrality. By 2025, we aim for 50% of our global sales to be fully electric cars, before we reach the all-in point by 2030.

今年3月,我们为全面电气化、商业模式创新和气候零负荷进一步设定了时间表,向前迈进了重要一步。到2025 年,我们的目标是全球销售的50%是纯电动汽车,到2030年我们致力于成为纯电豪华车企。

Since 2010, China has been our second-biggest market, and it is now our largest as well as the engine for growth. We give top priority to sustainability as we expand in China. We are acting quicky to introduce our full range of electric cars to Chinese consumers. On top of that, the electricity powering our plants in Chengdu and Daqing is now 100% renewable. We are also an industry leader in water treatment, emissions reduction in manufacturing, as well as waste sorting and recycling.

自2010年以来,中国一直是我们的第二大市场,而现在中国已经成为我们最大的市场和增长引擎。随着我们在中国市场的扩张,我们将可持续发展放在首要的位置。我们正在迅速采取行动,尽快向中国消费者推出我们的全系列电动车型。更重要的是,我们在成都和大庆的工厂现在已采用100%的可再生电力。同时,在制造环节的减排、废水处理、垃圾分类及回收方面,我们也处于行业领先地位。

As a forum today is such an excellent platform for cross-industry communication and knowledge sharing. Volvo Cars hopes to use this platform to further enhance communication and collaboration with our partners from all walks of life, and jointly contribute to the sustainable development of the auto industry and the entire society. Our purpose is to deliver the freedom to move in a personal, sustainable and safe way.

本次论坛是一个跨行业交流和知识共享的绝佳平台。沃尔沃汽车希望通过这个平台进一步加强与各界合作伙伴的交流与合作,共同为汽车行业和整个社会的可持续发展做出贡献。我们的宗旨是以个性化、可持续和安全的方式,为所有人提供畅行无忧的出行方案。

Lastly, I wish the conference great success. Thank you!

最后,预祝会议取得圆满成功。谢谢!
