Volkswagen de Mexico reaches new milestone using renewable energies
MEXICO – As part of the ‘Way To Zero’ strategy, which includes its environmental responsibility in production, the contribution to the protection of biodiversity and the commitment to the future of mobility, Volkswagen de Mexico reached a production of 1.6 million vehicles and 1.3 million engines, using energy from renewable sources.
For more than 54 months since the start of electric energy production at the “La Bufa” wind farm, located in the state of Zacatecas, the German carmaker has been a pioneer in the production of vehicles and engines using clean energy.
The impact on the environment from the supply of wind energy in Volkswagen’s processes during these four and a half years reaches a total of 692,296 tons of CO2 that have stopped being emitted into the environment, the equivalent of what 745,000 families generate in a year.
By integrating energy from renewable sources, the carmaker contributes to the Zero Impact Production strategy, which aims to achieve a 51% reduction by 2025 in five specific indicators: energy consumption, water consumption, waste management, generation of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and CO2 emissions.
The use of clean energy in its processes, is complemented with several actions in favor of the protection of biodiversity within which Volkswagen de Mexico advances in its strategic goal of planting 1 million trees by 2023 and of which already has 850,000 trees planted in the states of Puebla and Guanajuato.
