Brussels plant achieves ‘CO2-neutral site’ status.
Audi says the world’s first certified CO2-neutral high-volume production plant in the premium segment will soon begin production of the first fully electric series production Audi.
Audi Brussels has been awarded a “CO2-neutral site” certificate by the Belgian testing company Vinçotte. “We are working on making every factory in the Group even more sustainable,” said Peter Kössler, Member of the Board of Management for Production and Logistics at AUDI AG. “We intend to gradually supply our plants with green electricity.”
Rüdiger Recknagel, Head of Environmental Protection at AUDI AG, added, “In 2014, we were the first premium manufacturer to measure our CO2 footprint and have it certified. Since then, we have been working steadily to reduce it further. We are also installing new technologies at all our plants to reduce water consumption, prevent air pollution and improve recycling.”
