Sustainability goes beyond an ideal at Volkswagen. For us, it’s about making real changes that bring our vision for tomorrow to life. That’s why we’re challenging ourselves today, with an environmentally aware approach to production, design and operation. It’s our social responsibility to create vehicles and services that provide a genuine benefit to both people and the environment.
Our committed approach to ensuring a sustainable future is evident in every vehicle we produce. It’s our mission to keep our carbon footprint at a minimum, which means keeping a close eye on energy consumption per vehicle and improving our energy efficiency, water consumption waste for disposal, and CO2 emissions.
Engineering vehicles doesn’t have to come at a cost to the environment. That’s why we’ve been developing the Modular Electrification Toolkit (MEB), a revolutionary modular system capable of producing electric cars with much more efficiency.
An important contributor to reducing negative environmental impact is through the way we reuse our materials. Recycling is essential to our process, from the development phase of a new model, to the end of a vehicle’s life cycle. We are constantly enhancing our recycling methods, processes and technologies.
