Earth Day: Lamborghini receives the Green Star 2021 award and renews ist commitment to environmantal sustainability by participating in #Projekt1Hour.

With a holistic approach and long-standing commitment to sustainability, Automobili Lamborghini stands out as the undisputed leader in the supercar industry. Its steadfast commitment to sustainability represents a lasting promise to future generations, inspiring and guiding innovation and sustainable progress.

2009: Lamborghini was the first and only Italian company in the automotive sector to obtain EMAS environmental certification. In the same year, one of the largest photovoltaic systems in the industrial sector in Emilia Romagna was inaugurated, covering an area of 15,000 square meters and providing a CO2 reduction of 1,000 tons per year.

2011: Inauguration of the Lamborghini Park, a pioneering environmental initiative created in collaboration with the community of Sant’Agata Bolognese and the universities of Bologna, Bolzano and Munich. The project involved the planting and studying of 10,000 oak trees.

2012: Inauguration of a building specifically dedicated to the development of prototypes and pre-series cars. It was the first industrial multi-story building in Italy designed to achieve energy class A.

2015: Implementation of the new trigeneration and district heating systems, two of the main projects supported by the company in Sant’Agata Bolognese to obtain CO2-neutral certification for the entire plant. The district heating system alone, which distributes hot water inside the factory from a biogas-fueled cogeneration plant, saves around 1,800 tons of CO2 each year.

2016: Installation of an apiary to start an environmental biomonitoring activity with bees inside the Lamborghini Park. In addition to the ecological purposes and monitoring of pollution levels in the area surrounding the Sant’Agata Bolognese production site, the apiary produces certified Lamborghini-brand honey which is distributed yearly to the employees.

2017: Inauguration of Torre 1963 office building, which obtained the record score in Italy (92 pts) in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum certification, the highest international standard of energy and environmental certification for buildings.

2018: With the expansion of the Sant’Agata Bolognese production site (from 80,000 to 160,000 square meters), following the launch of the Urus project, the entire plant maintained the CO2-neutral certification obtained in 2015 thanks to an expansion project that fully respected the commitments made in terms of environmental sustainability.

2019: Implementation of the new Urus paint shop that resulted in a 30% reduction in land use compared to a comparable plant. 95% of the paints used are water-based, and with E-Cube technology, which allows overspray to be captured during the painting process; water consumption for air filtration is reduced to zero.

2020: Efficient resource management, energy supply from renewable sources, protection of biodiversity, and recycling of materials: these are just some of the targets achieved in the course of 2020 that aim to meet new global challenges for a more sustainable future. In addition, the company set up a new Sustainability Project Team, an interdepartmental working group with the aim of exchanging new ideas for continuous improvement.

2021: Logistics went greener thanks to a rail transport project of the Urus body shells that replaced road transportation, with 85 percent reduction in CO2 emissions.

2022: In July, on the third round of the Super Trofeo Europe Championship in Misano, Lamborghini Squadra Corse received the ISO 20121 certification from TÜV Italia, which certifies that the organization of an event has been carried out according to the environmental, social, and economic sustainability criteria. The Lamborghini Motorsport department implemented a detailed program for the Misano stage, based on energy-efficiency projects, the reduced use of paper and plastic, the use of local organic products for catering, and food recovery projects for charitable causes. It also helped raise awareness and increase understanding about the issue among everyone involved in the race weekend.

2023: In November, the Lamborghini World Finals held at Vallelunga circuit obtained the ISO 20121 certification from TÜV Italia. This achievement reconfirmed the strategy adopted by Squadra Corse, which in 2022 already received ISO 20121 certification for the Misano stage of the Super Trofeo Europe. Members of the team, drivers and technicians took part in training courses and awareness-raising initiatives on sustainability issues, with the aim of putting into practice all the correct actions for reducing consumption and cutting waste.

2024: Automobili Lamborghini announces the expansion of its decarbonization strategy, encompassing the entire value chain, with the goal of achieving a 40% CO2 emissions reduction per vehicle by 2030 (vs 2021). This path will lead to a significant decrease in CO2 emissions compared to 2021, with the aim of reaching a 50% reduction by 2025 and an 80% reduction by 2030 for the circulating fleet.
