  • Components for battery production at Audi Brussels to be transported by rail instead of truck in the future
  • The switch will save around 2,600 tons of CO2 annually
  • Project serves as a model for sustainable logistics in Audi’s global production network and dovetails with strategic environmental program Mission:Zero

A holistic approach to carbon-neutral logistics is celebrating its premiere: Battery modules and cells from Hungary will in future be delivered to Brussels by rail instead of truck. This switch will reduce annual carbon emissions by around 2,600 tons – and serves as a model for revolutionizing, if possible, all shipments of the car manufacturer’s battery components. Reducing the company’s ecological footprint is the central goal of the cross-site environmental program Mission:Zero.
