Volkswagen Sachsen reduces environmental footprint using Naturstrom® hydropower

Volkswagen Sachsen reduces environmental footprint using Naturstrom® hydropower
  • Dresden, Zwickau and Chemnitz plants purchase electric power from renewable sources
  • Environmental optimization of plants on the way to entirely CO2-free electric vehicle production
  • Cooperation with Verbund AG and South Pole Group

The Volkswagen brand is stepping up the use of renewable energy in production with a view to further reducing its environmental footprint. Starting this year, the three production plants of Volkswagen Sachsen GmbH have been supplied with Volkswagen Naturstrom® electric power from 100% renewable sources by VW Kraftwerk GmbH. This measure is playing its part in meeting the target of Volkswagen's Think Blue. Factory environmental program to produce each vehicle and component in a way which is 45 percent more environmentally compatible in 2025 than in the base year of 2010.
