Resource scarcity, environmental pollution and climate change are among the greatest challenges we face today. The Audi Group helps manage them by manufacturing sustainable products and developing innovative drive technologies as well as starting to reduce its environmental footprint as early as the production stage. That means using resources such as energy and water carefully, and avoiding emissions of carbon dioxide, solvents and waste.
How is Audi making carbon-neutral production a reality?
In 2014, Audi was the first premium carmaker to determine its corporate carbon footprint according to an internationally accepted standard. It marked a key step toward transparency in the company’s greenhouse gas emissions. Today, these emissions can be analyzed in even greater detail and effectively reduced.
Brussels is an example: Production at the site is completely carbon neutral, as certified by independent experts. That makes the facility both a pioneer and a role model. It is also logical that the first purely electric series-production vehicle, the Audi e-tron, is manufactured here. This is one effort not only to secure the company’s own future, but also to play its part in achieving the strategic goal of sustainability.
Apart from reducing CO₂ emissions, other steps are taken to improve the site’s environmental footprint. Additional projects protect the environment by conserving water and energy or reducing emissions of pollutants into the air and water.
All processes are founded on efficiency. And that includes avoiding materials that are harmful to the environment and making optimum use of resources. Cutting-edge technology is used to accomplish this.
