The founding partners - CAKE and Vattenfall
At first glance, CAKE and Vattenfall may seem like two vastly different companies. Look closer, and you’ll find two leaders within their respective sector, united in their drive and desire for positive change.
CAKE as a company was founded on the premise of propelling change and speeding up the transition towards a fossil-free society. Vattenfall aims to make fossil free living a reality by electrifying industries and decarbonize entire production chains.
“This collaboration is an excellent example of how we can contribute with fossil-free know-how and supply chain expertise in a specific product that drives towards zero emissions“
- Annika Ramsköld, Head of Corporate Sustainability at Vattenfall.
Realizing the major role that clean energy plays in decarbonizing a motorcycle, the two came together in 2020, forming a bold vision to truly create change in the two-wheeled vehicle industry. By 2025, we will manufacture and sell a dirt bike where every single screw and component has been thoroughly overhauled, the carbon footprint reduced to an absolute minimum – or, in the best of worlds, completely removed from the calculation, period.
More importantly, this project aims to inspire other brands, suppliers and opinion makers to think beyond industry borders and work together to find the solutions that will allow us all to live fossil free within one generation. That is how we can create impact on a larger scale.
We will partner with pioneers across industries who share our ambition to go fossil free. These entities can be current as well as new suppliers, researchers in relevant academia or forward leaning start-ups.
