Mahle: German production now CO2 neutral
Automotive supplier Mahle reports achieving CO2 neutrality at its production sites in Germany during the course of last year. This represents an important step in the plan to achieve company-wide CO2 neutral production by 2040. The company also aims to annually increase the use of self-generated power from renewable sources.
“As a foundation-owned company, we have a special responsibility toward mankind and the environment,” says Matthias Arleth, chief executive officer of the Mahle Group and chairman of the company’s Management Board. “We see the Paris climate agreement as a binding mandate to minimise emissions caused by mobility. Our technologies are already helping to make individual mobility more efficient, more sustainable, and thus more environmentally friendly.”
The aforementioned self-generated power will come from solar photovoltaic systems. This year, Mahle is launching projects in all regions where it operates.
