Hyundai Motor Group’s Executive Vice Chairman Euisun Chung calls for increased international cooperation to help tackle global climate challenges, as he is appointed co-chair of the Hydrogen Council, a global coalition of more than 50 prominent energy, transport and industrial companies with a shared vision for hydrogen’s integral role in the clean energy transition.

In a article published on the official blog of the World Economic Forum (WEF) during its Annual Meeting in Davos, EVC Chung and Chairman Benoit Potier of Air Liquide ― incoming and current co-chairs of the Hydrogen Council respectively ― emphasized the need for multilateral cooperation in realizing the benefits of global hydrogen deployment. In the address, the co-chairs maintained an unwavering stance that public-private collaboration is the only way to move the hydrogen economy from an idea to a real catalyst for the energy transition.

Through collaborative leadership of the Hydrogen Council alongside Benoit Potier, EVC Chung hopes to contribute to expediting the realization of a zero-emission hydrogen energy society, which will help address global climate challenges for future generations.
