Environmental responsibility is a part of ŠKODA AUTO’s corporate strategy. It is not possible to be part of a globally interconnected world without accepting our share of responsibility for the environment and for future generations. This is why ŠKODA strives to offer vehicles that are not only safe, practical, and comfortable, but also environmentally friendly. Throughout the development process, we endeavour to minimize fuel consumption and exhaust emissions, utilizing the latest technology available.
Mission Statement Environment
For all our products and mobility solutions we aspire to minimize environmental impacts along the entire lifecycle – from raw material extraction until end-of-life - in order to keep ecosystems intact and to create positive impacts on society. Compliance with environmental regulations, standards and voluntary commitments is a basic prerequisite of our actions.
Focus on four prioritized action areas:
We are committed to the Paris Climate Agreement. We intend to become a carbon neutral company by 2050. By 2025, we plan to reduce our total life cycle Greenhouse Gas Emissions of passenger cars and light duty vehicles by 30% compared to 2015. We actively contribute to the transition towards renewable energies along the entire life cycle.
We intend to maximize resource efficiency and promote circular economy approaches in the areas of materials, energy, water and land use. By 2025, we plan to have reduced the production-related environmental externalities (CO2, energy, water, waste, volatile organic compounds) by 45% per vehicle compared to 2010
We are driving e-mobility forward to improve the local air quality. By 2025, the share of battery electric vehicles in our model portfolio will be between 20 and 25%. The share of electric vehicles in the Group fleet is to rise to at least 40% by 2030.
We aim to become a role model for a modern, transparent and successful enterprise in terms of integrity by installing and controlling effective management systems covering the environmental impacts of our mobility solutions over all life cycle stages.
We were able to recycle 42 per cent of the total 1.55 million m3 of water we used last year.More about Green Factory
