REDUCED ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT ACROSS OUR BUSINESS
We are committed to finding ways to minimise our impact on the environment. That’s why one of the core aspects of our Destination Zero mission is working towards zero emissions.
Our long-term goals of net zero emissions and zero waste drive us to look for innovative ways to improve energy efficiency and ensure efficient resource consumption across our operations and product lifecycle.
Reducing our carbon footprint
We continue to systematically reduce our environmental impact by assessing our carbon footprint (CO2e) across the whole lifecycle and value chain of our products. We conduct life cycle assessments to help us compare performance characteristics of a range of raw materials and understand the full environmental impact of our vehicles.
We have set a global carbon budget across our business, helping to drive reductions in our direct and indirect carbon emissions; our UK vehicle manufacturing and product development sites have been certified as carbon neutral by the Carbon Trust, while the average amount of energy used to build one of our vehicles has reduced by over a third since 2007.
Embracing the Circular Economy
We adopt circular economy principles; doing more with less by closing the loop on precious materials and actively recycling and reusing our waste and materials wherever we can. We are developing second lives for the batteries from our electric vehicles, actively removing single use plastic items from our operations, and recovering and reforming aluminium from used vehicles to be utilised in new models.
