Clean car construction Less CO2 in production and the supply chain

In the paint shop, a load-dependent volume flow control saves electricity and often natural gas and reduces CO2 emissions.

The second main pillar on the Way to Zero is carbon reduction in the supply chains and production. The goal for 2030 is to have just about all the external energy supply required by Volkswagen’s global production factories to come from renewable sources. The decarbonisation of production also incorporates suppliers. Supply chains and production make up around 48% of an electric vehicle’s carbon footprint.
