Volkswagen is shouldering its social responsibility for the climate and consistently aligning the company towards clean mobility. Our vision is to allow CO2-neutral mobility for people and goods throughout the world.
In specific terms, this means that the CO2 emissions of vehicle fleets will be continuously reduced towards zero up to 2050. In order to consistently achieve this goal, the brand will be investing about €11 billion in the digitalization of vehicles and plants and CO2-neutral production including the supply chain and battery cell production up to 2023. This figure includes an investment of €9 billion in e-mobility.
At the same time, Volkswagen is ensuring that its business partners also comply with its environmental and social standards on a binding basis. In future, there is to be a sustainability rating which will be taken into consideration in the assessment of suppliers. Sustainability is to become a selection criterion that will be just as important as cost, quality, technological competence and innovative strength.
