Maximum transparency: Audi receives DEKRA certificate for carbon footprint
- First premium automobile manufacturer with corporate carbon footprint calculated in detail and certified
- Board of Management Member for Production Dr. Hubert Waltl:
- “An important element of climate-neutral mobility”
- Transparency on company-wide greenhouse-gas emissions
The Audi Group has calculated its corporate carbon footprint and is the first premium automobile manufacturer to be certified according to the international standard ISO 14064. For this purpose, the Group made a detailed assessment of emissions in all automobile lifecycle phases. Experts of DEKRA Certification GmbH and DEKRA Certification Inc. reviewed and confirmed the basic data sources and calculations. With the corporate carbon footprint, Audi is making its company-wide greenhouse-gas emissions transparent along its entire value chain. This will enable the Group to analyze them even more systematically and to reduce them more effectively in the future.
