Environmental protection at the Neckarsulm site
Since 1995, the Neckarsulm site has regularly been certified in accordance with the Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) of the European Union, and it was once again certified in 2015. A key factor for certification is that evidence is provided of compliance with applicable law and of continual improvements in environmental protection. The Audi site in Neckarsulm therefore searches for new solutions in many areas, for example to reduce energy consumption, CO2, dust and solvent emissions, and to increase waste recycling while minimizing total waste. By 2020, the site’s CO2 emissions are to be reduced by 40 percent compared with 2010. An important step in this direction is that 40 percent of the electrical energy used in 2014 was regenerative.
