Hyundai Motor Executive Vice Chairman Chung Eui-sun has said that 'hydrogen has a place as a central pillar to the clean energy transition'. He was speaking at clean mobility forum in Singapore last week, the company said Sunday.

The Korea Herald reported his remarks. "The report (released by the UN) warns us that we must decrease global greenhouse gas emissions 45 percent below 2010 levels by 2030, in order to avoid a catastrophe. I sincerely believe without any shadow of doubt that hydrogen has a place as a central pillar to the clean energy transition," Chung said.

Citing the transportation sector as the first industry the carmaker is likely to target, Chung added, "But our commitments go beyond transportation, and we will make sure to send out the message that hydrogen can deliver economically viable, financially attractive, and socially beneficial solutions."
