Sustainability at ŠKODA AUTO
ŠKODA #auto consistently seeks to minimise the environmental impact of its business activities and has once again significantly strengthened its ambitious environmental targets in the NEXT LEVEL – ŠKODA STRATEGY 2030: From 2030, the Czech and Indian production sites will be manufacturing vehicles with net-zero emissions, and the brand’s fleet emissions in Europe will drop by more than 50% compared to 2020. The Vrchlabí plant is leading the way: Since the end of 2020, it has been the carmaker’s first production site to be net CO2 neutral. The company is also reorienting its Purchasing department: Sustainability and the circular economy play a key role here, as well. ŠKODA #auto continues to involve its suppliers along the entire value chain and supports them in developing innovative sustainability approaches.
