The Renaulution: A new chapter

The Renaulution is well and truly in motion. It paves the way for new prospects, like that of a better protected environment, greater safety, and more inclusion!
The group is evolving into a green, tech company harnessing new business in energy, data, and services.
Our commitments to become carbon free, improve safety, and foster inclusion have been fully integrated into our operations and further create value.

The 3 pillars of our environmental and societal strategy

Carbon neutrality
"Green as a business"
Reducing our carbon footprint, a performance driver01

Do more with less; reduce CO2 emissions throughout the life cycle of our vehicles with the aim of reaching carbon neutrality by 2040 in Europe, and 2050 worldwide:
  • with our suppliers
  • at our production sites
  • when used
  • end of life cycle
On track to
carbon neutrality
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.
2040
In Europe
2050
Worldwide
With our suppliers
Six materials and components account for 90% of our carbon footprint from purchased parts:

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.
Every time we work with our suppliers and for every purchasing tender, we will include a carbon assessment.

We also aim to have batteries that are green, carbon-free, and sustainable. By 2025, we will reduce the carbon footprint of our batteries by up to 35% through the procurement of nickel and lithium.

At our production sites

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.
We will reach carbon neutrality in our electric vehicle facilities in the north of France by 2025, and in the rest of Europe by 2030.

Decarbonization of all European facilities by 2030
When in use

In Europe, the Group will achieve a 35% reduction in vehicle emissions by 2025, and 65% by 2030. The Renault brand will have the greenest product mix with electric models accounting for 90% of sales by 2030.

The well-to-wheel carbon footprint

During dismantling and recycling

Thanks to the Filns Re-Factory and our subsidiaries at Renault Environment, 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.

Safety
“Caring cars, caring company”: Safety as a priority02

Through innovation and implementation, we strive to optimise safety for our employees and all those who use our vehicles.
Vehicle safety
Vehicle safety
In Europe in 2019, the number of road fatalities reached 23,000. A figure that can be explained by number of reasons: excessive or inappropriate speed (30%), driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol (25%), or lack of concentration (20%).

To make driving safer, we rely on a two-pronged approach: prevention and rescue

Prevention

Detect and inform

Safety Score

The ‘Safety score’ will help analyse driving data using sensors located on the vehicle.

Guide

Safety Coach

This device will process road and traffic data to inform drivers of potential risks on their route and will give real-time warnings on danger-prone areas.

Act

Safe Guardian

A fail-safe mechanism will take trigger automatically in the event of a clear and present danger (a far too dangerous turn, loss of steering wheel control for a prolonged period, drowsiness, etc.). The vehicle will then slow down and return to a safe driving mode.

Rescue

Fire-fighter access

It helps fire-fighters put out accidental battery fires. The access considerably reduces response time (from nearly 2 hours to only a few minutes).

Rescue code

A QR code that fire-fighters can use to identify a vehicle and access its structural information. Renault Group has trained fire-fighters in 15 European countries on how to use the code, while also donating several hundred vehicles for them to use in their training programs.

Workplace Safety
One health, one company

Prevention campaigns
As of 2021, preventive health programs on women's cancers and cardiovascular diseases.
Medical coverage for all
Optimal medical coverage for 100% of group employees.Access to remote medical consultations for 100% of employees by 2025.
An objective of zero
work-related accidents and illnesses

Inclusion
“Giving chances”
Our transformation is inclusive03

Renault Group is rethinking its organization to better adapt to each of its employees, to ensure that their well-being at work continues to improve, and to accompany the transformation of professions within the automotive industry.

Stand up for employability

Within the group…

The group is set to inaugurate a tertiary education centre dedicated to the learning of new skills in electrification, in data analysis and cyber-security, and in vehicle and battery recycling: The ReKnow University. Initially aimed at group employees in France, it will provide training for almost 40% of involved staff involved by 2025, before extending out to industry partners.

…and beyond

We see employability as something beyond the group’s boundaries. The company’s foundations, both in France and internationally, as well as its educational programs run in schools and with academic partners, will provide support for initiatives that foster inclusion through employment. Our 2025 ambition is to have given support to 19,000 people, be they young and in school, or long-term unemployed adults.

Gender balance

We are committed to promoting women to key positions within the group and in governance bodies. Our 2030 target is to have 30% of women in the top 4,000 and 11,000 positions, as well as its governance bodies.
We will uphold our position as industry leader in terms of reducing the gender pay gap, which is already close to zero at group level and will hit zero around the world by 2025.

THE UNDERLYING OBSERVATION

50%
of job seekers say they refuse training or employment because they lack transport.

Solidarity

We wish to promote mobility throughout all regions. Mobility can be a source of inequality and is sometimes a necessary hurdle to overcome in getting, keeping, or training for a job.
Renault Group has entered a partnership with Pôle Emploi (French job-seekers agency) and a micro credit agency to provide unemployed people – who are unable to contract a bank loan – with a leased vehicle. The 2025 target is to increase the number of beneficiaries tenfold.

Our CSR strategy

is piloted from the upper most echelons of the company, embodied by our brands, and realised by our functional divisions.
