Today, the magnitude of the climate challenge and the urgent need for collective action are no longer subject to debate. Renault Group is making concrete and wide-ranging contributions to carbon emissions reduction, with the aim of achieving carbon neutrality in Europe by 2040 and worldwide by 2050.
Reducing our carbon footprint and recycle, two performance drivers.
Do more with less; reduce CO2 emissions throughout the life cycle of our vehicles with the aim of reaching net zero carbon* by 2040 in Europe, and 2050 worldwide.
*achieved when the volume of greenhouse gas emissions is balanced by equivalent capture.
Our carbon emissions have been reduced across the board: in the materials and parts we purchase, at production sites, on-road emissions, second life as well as recycling...
the whole vehicle life cycle has been optimized to reduce our footprint.
steel, aluminium, polymers, electronics, lenses, and tires. By 2030, by channelling our efforts towards these six components, we hope to have reduced their carbon footprint by 30%.
We will reach our target so long as we can foster a shared commitment with our key supply partners.
To this end, we are working with our suppliers to implement carbon reporting for future projects.
We also aim to have batteries that are green, carbon-free, and sustainable. By 2030, we aim to reduce the carbon footprint of our batteries by 35%, by implementing low-carbon sourcing of batteries and materials like nickel, lithium and cobalt.
We are reducing the carbon footprint of our facilities. Tangiers is already carbon neutral. Our Flins plant will be Europe's first carbon negative plant dedicated to the circular economy.
By 2025, our ElectriCity plants in the North of France will be net zero carbon, as well as all our European plants, by 2030.
To avoid the use of fossil fuels at its manufacturing sites, Renault Group is working with a network of partners to make the transition to renewable energies, including photovoltaic, geothermal and biomass initiatives.
In Europe, the Group will achieve a 35% reduction in vehicle emissions by 2025, and 65% by 2030. The goal of the Renault brand is to be a 100% electric brand by 2030.
The electrification of the Renault and Alpine ranges and the Mobilize offer will contribute directly to this objective. As will the development and manufacture of efficient internal combustion and hybrid powertrains by the new Horse entity. HYVIA's range of hydrogen-powered commercial vehicles will also contribute. HYVIA is targeting a 30% share of this market in Europe by 2030 and has already booked orders worth €1 billion up to 2026.
Thanks to the Flins Refactory and The Future Is NEUTRAL entity, our dismantling, component recycling, and battery businesses will generate more than €1 billion in sales in 2030.
By recycling minerals contained in batteries through various partnerships, we shore up a responsible and sustainable supply of essential metals.
