Continental meets target of 100% green electricity for production

A KPMG reasonable assurance report has revealed that Continental achieved its target of using 100% green electricity in its production processes in 2020. Last year, the manufacturer purchased four million MWh of green energy, and reduced its direct and indirect global COemissions by 70%, down from 3.2 million metric tons in 2019 to 0.99 million metric tons in 2020. Continental says that several forms of renewable energy were used to help reach the target, including water, sun and wind.

“Sustainable business is the future. With our ambitious goals, we are decisively pursuing the transformation to a sustainable economy,” commented Ariane Reinhart, the Continental executive board member responsible for sustainability. “We are delighted by this objective validation of our work. The result of the audit shows that we take our sustainability ambitions seriously and are meeting the targets we have set ourselves.”
