Mission Statement Environment

For all our products and mobility solutions we aspire to minimize environmental impacts along the entire lifecycle — from raw material extraction until end-of-life — in order to keep ecosystems intact and to create positive impacts on society.

Compliance with environmental regulations, standards and voluntary commitments is a basic prerequisite of our actions.

The VOLKSWAGEN Group Rus OOO recognizes the Mission statement environment 'Go to Zero' of the VOLKSWAGEN Group and by its own measures — at the level of the Russian Federation and CIS countries — contributes to achieving the global VOLKSWAGEN Group goals for the four priority global activities of the VOLKSWAGEN Group.

Mission 'Go to Zero':

  • Climate change
    By 2025, we as VOLKSWAGEN Group plan to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions from our cars and light commercial vehicles throughout their entire life cycle by 30% compared to 2015.
  • Resources
    We intend to maximize the efficiency of the use of natural resources and accelerate the transition to the secondary use of raw materials, energy and water. By 2025, we as the VOLKSWAGEN Group plan to reduce the negative impact of production on the environment at the global level (CO2 emissions, the use of energy, water, waste, volatile organic compounds) by 45% per one car produced compared to 2010.
  • Air quality
    In order to improve air quality, we as VOLKSWAGEN Group accelerate the transition to electric car. By 2025, the share of battery electric vehicles in the model range of VOLKSWAGEN Group will be from 20 to 25% worldwide. By 2030, the share of electric vehicles in the fleet of new VOLKSWAGEN Group cars in Europe and China should grow to at least 40%.
  • Environmental compliance
    As VOLKSWAGEN Group we aim to become a role model for a modern, open and succesful enterprise in terms of integrity by introducing and regularly monitoring effective management systems that minimize the negative impact on the environment of our mobility services at all stages of our product life cycle.
