One Year of the Audi CO2 Program: Reduction Potential of 1.2 tons of CO2 Per Car Identified

source: Audi AG

  • 50 measures worked out with suppliers in 30 workshops: successful first year for the “CO2 Program” at Audi Procurement
  • Focus on aluminum, steel and battery materials
  • Board of Management Member for Procurement Bernd Martens: “We are creating more transparency in the supply chain.”

The consistent electrification of the product range means that a large proportion of the CO2 emissions are no longer accounted for by cars’ exhaust systems, but by the supply chain and in upstream production processes. Together with its suppliers, therefore, Audi is developing measures to reduce CO2 emissions that take effect already in that phase. The focus of the CO2 program is on particularly energy-intensive materials used in production, such as aluminum, steel and battery components.
