Putting Bicycle Industry at the Core of Sustainable Development

Embracing disruptive technologies

International Climate Conferences and national governments are setting ambitious sustainability goals. Goals that can only be met through radical changes. Like doubling the modal share of cycling in the world’s biggest cities. These grand ambitions put the bicycle industry at the core of sustainable development.


But what must the industry do to meet its sustainability potential? What’s needed for manufacturing processes? What kind of materials and technologies can we expect? And what will be the recycling and corporate social responsibility climate?


The 2019 World Cycling Forum addresses these in-depth questions. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from the answers presented at the forum. Get better equipped to prosper as these massive changes make their impact felt on the bicycle industry. Join us on June 4 and 5, 2019 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands for the World Cycling Forum 2019.
