Škoda scores top marks for its sustainability-related commitment and strategically responsible conduct
Škoda set the course for sustainable and long-term growth in its 2025 Strategy, which comprises the strategic key areas of electromobility, the digitalisation of the company, internationalisation and new mobility services.
Here, the ‘GreenFuture’ strategy provides the foundation and direction. In addition to the development of efficient and environmentally friendly vehicles, it also aims for the conservation of resources during production and eco-friendly operation at dealerships.
The Czech car manufacturer succeeded in reducing its vehicle production’s strain on the environment by 56.1 per cent between 2010 and 2018 – 6 per cent points better than its target.
Water consumption per car produced was reduced by 38.2 per cent during the same period and the amount of volatile organic compounds that arise during painting fell by 48.9 per cent per vehicle.
All of the current Škoda models fulfil the latest EU requirements for the recyclability of materials; the Scala is made from 85% recyclable materials.
In 2018, Škoda was named Top Responsible Large Company for its commitment and achievements from the non-profit organisation "Business for Society".
