Respect for the 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.

Three environmental challenges…

  1. Fight against global warming: reduce greenhouse gases
  2. Preservation of natural resources: optimise their use and reuse
  3. Health, reduce polluting emissions

Through its environmental policy, Groupe Renault acts also to preserve biodiversity.

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 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.

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).

Carbon footprint

The Groupe Renault has been the 1st automaker to publicly commit to a numerical target for the reduction of its carbon footprint. Compared to 2010, the decrease already reached -18.2% in 2016. The next step? To take this number to -25% by 2022. We thus remain a positive contributor to the decarbonization of the automobile sector, indispensable to fulfil the COP21 commitments.
