From 2010 to 2016, Groupe Renault reduced its carbon footprint every year by 3.3% on average, exceeding its initial target of 3%*.
By 2022, we expect to reduce our carbon footprint by as much as 25% compared with 2010 levels.
*on average per year, per vehicle sold throughout the world
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.
Groupe Renault has set three leadership goals: electric vehicles, the circular economy and driverless vehicles. As well as a cross-functional performance indicator: the reduction of its carbon footprint. These ambitions will be achieved by the Drive the Future plan, in 2022.
Groupe Renault considers electric vehicles the best global solution to the challenges of the environment and sustainable mobility for all. Already a pioneer and leader in electric vehicle sales in Europe, with the best supply in price and autonomy, Renault isn’t stopping there. Our new goals: to increase supply and accelerate the construction of a dedicated ecosystem.
For Groupe Renault, the circular economy is both the environmental and the economical choice. It’s the only model capable of bringing raw material consumption under control and having a positive impact on resource, climate, and air quality challenges. A pioneer and leader in the industrialisation of the circular economy in the automotive sector, Renault wants to go further: specifically, by increasing the number of reused parts for automotive needs.
Already invested in new mobilities services, Groupe Renault wants to strengthen its position in this field. It even aims to be a leader in autonomous, driverless vehicles, also called “robot vehicles”. Traffic flow, better road safety, reduced air pollution... We’re committed to developing new modes of transport, which will transform urban mobility.
