The road to climate neutrality

We want to be climate neutral by 2040 – it’s the biggest challenge
we’ve ever faced.

We’re part of the problem. So it’s our responsibility to change what
we do and how we do it. Let’s all be part of the solution.

Fully electric by 2030

Today, all our cars have an electrified version. We plan to become a fully electric car company by
2030 – by then we want all our new cars to be pure electric. We’re all in.

But electrification is not enough

We need to reduce all our direct and indirect emissions. So we’re tackling CO2 within our supply chain and operations – this includes embracing the circular economy.

Mid-decade milestones

As an interim step towards our climate neutral by 2040 target, we’re aiming to reduce the lifecycle carbon footprint per vehicle by 40 per cent between 2018 and 2025

We support the goals of the Paris Agreement

The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi)* has approved our ambitious plan to become a climate-neutral company by 2040. According to SBTi, our emissions reduction targets are in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement to limit global warming to well below 2°C compared to pre-industrial levels

We’re committed to reducing our impact on the planet and we know it’ll take a global effort. So it’s important to collaborate with other like-minded companies, suppliers and organisations, to drive our own sustainability performance and change within our industry.

*SBTi is a collaboration between the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), the United Nations Global Compact, the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF).
