Respect for the environment

Bandeau environment
Even though the world has become aware of the scope of our environmental challenges, action still urgently needs to be taken. That’s why Groupe Renault, in collaboration with stakeholders, implements a voluntary environmental strategy. Our goal is to be at the centre of the action. It’s a daily responsibility based on innovation, in order to prepare for a better future.

Our approach is to anticipate and to manage environmental issues in a voluntarist manner as opportunities for new services and technological innovations.

Identified challenges

Innovating to meet environmental challenges.

Groupe Renault is aware of the challenges and is using its DNA as an innovative generalist car manufacturer to build its environmental strategy. We advocate a model of sustainable mobility that’s broadly affordable and uses high-performance ecological processes.

Concrete solutions

Groupe Renault's strategic plan strengthens its position as a pioneer and leader in the realm of sustainable mobility for all.

Groupe Renault has set three leadership goals: electric vehicles, the circular economy and new mobilities. As well as a cross-functional performance indicator: the reduction of its carbon footprint. These ambitions will be achieved by 2022.

To study the contribution of new mobility solutions to the energy transition and accelerate the roll-out of sustainable mobility solutions for all, Groupe Renault and WWF France (French NGO) have forged a partnership in 2018.

Life-cycle assessment

Since 2005, Renault has been committed to reducing the environmental impact of its vehicles throughout their life-cycle (from the extraction of the raw materials needed for manufacturing until their end-of-life). In order to ensure and monitor compliance with this commitment, the Group carries out Life-Cycle Assessments (LCA).

If you wish to know the LCA of one of our vehicles, please make your request here.
