As one of the world’s largest automotive manufacturers and mobility providers, Volkswagen is aware of the responsibility this entails. We are committed to the Paris Climate Agreement, which aims to keep the increase in global temperature by 2050 to well below two degrees Celsius. Volkswagen wants to become a net carbon-neutral company by 2050. We have set an intermediate goal for ourselves along the way: by 2030, Volkswagen wants to reduce the carbon footprint of its passenger cars and light commercial vehicles by 30% per vehicle (compared with 2018). We want to achieve this goal purely through reduction measures and switching to renewable energies – i.e., without any offset measures. In addition to the Group’s electric offensive, we are concentrating to a greater extent on integrating renewably generated electricity in the use phase and switching the entire power supply for our plants to renewable energy.
