Climate change is the greatest global challenge. Volkswagen was the first long-term car manufacturer to commit itself to the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement. By 2050, the entire Group wants to become balance sheet neutral. The step that VfL Wolfsburg, as a subsidiary of Volkswagen AG, is now taking is another strong exclamation mark on the road to climate neutrality. The Bundesliga soccer team wants to minimize its greenhouse gas emissions and be CO2-neutral by 2025. To this end, the Lower Saxony club is the first professional club in the world to commit to the United Nations' "Race to Zero" initiative that is based on the Paris Climate Protection Agreement.
