03 Jul The (Re)cycling Webinar – Circular Bikes & Services Shaping Today’s Ecosystem
CIE's Cycling Innovation Network webinar returns with its second of the series on cycling industry innovation shines a light on how the drive towards sustainability and circularity is inspiring new services and products across the bicycle value chain.
While cycling is far more sustainable than many other modes of transportation, producing bicycles and servicing riders raises complex environmental challenges nonetheless. With a forecast of 30 million bicycles sold in Europe by 2030 for an ever-growing and diverse ridership base, scarcity of resources is an emerging issue and more circularity will undeniably be part of the solution to support Europe’s ambitions to become the ‘cycling continent’.
Following up on a highly successful webinar on cargo bike innovation last February 2023, this edition will give the floor to the entrepreneurs who have decided that circularity, sustainability and recycling would be at the forefront of their business choices.
- How technology + simple solutions = circular designs for greener and more liveable cities, with Richard Burger, Founder, Swapfiets
- Building a global platform for pre-loved, professionally-refurbished e-bikes , with Toussaint Wattine, Co-Founder & CEO, Upway
- Tommorrow’s bicycle? How recycled plastic could transform urban mobility, with Sven Terhardt, Head of Sales & Marketing, Igus:bike
- Putting sustainability first at every stage of production in the kids’ bike market, with Anna Drew, Head of Sustainability, Frog Bikes
Moderation by Jana Fliegel, Community & Communication Manager, VeloLAB

23 Jun The Big Sustainability Event at Eurobike 2023
Yellow Stage, Hall 8, Future Mobility Forum, EUROBIKE Frankfurt Messe
The cycling industry is facing new and unprecedented challenges in the field of sustainability. We are confronted with climate emergency and environmental crisis, on top of shifting global economic and political trends. New EU policy developments are requiring companies to conform to new international standards on transparency and traceability, including batteries, critical raw materials, packaging, carbon tariffs, and digital services. Ambitious, stricter rules on environmental reporting and performance are swiftly changing the regulatory landscape.
How can we tackle the challenges and navigate in the changing regulatory landscape? How can we work together as an industry and take joint action?
Many companies aspire to be at the forefront of the green transition, working hard to come up with solutions. Come and join the debate at the Cycling Industries Sustainability Panel!
