Aston Martin racing to net zero by 2039

Aston Martin racing to net zero by 2039

Aston Martin has committed to achieving net zero emissions across its entire supply chain by 2039.

The luxury carmaker has launched a new strategy called ‘Racing.Green’, which encompasses how the company will cut its carbon emissions and reach net zero.

By 2030, it has vowed to make its manufacturing facilities net zero, with a 30% reduction in supply chain emissions – as a short-term target for its longer 2039 aim.

It has joined the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi) to have its carbon targets verified and checked.

Aston Martin is planning at its plant in Wales that will see 14,000 solar panels installed to deliver 20% of its annual energy demand and it claims that 100% of its waste is already diverted from landfill.

In terms of electrification, its first plug-in hybrid model will hit the roads in 2024, while plans for the first electric vehicle (EV) are set for the following year. By 2026, the company aims to have an electric option for all its models.

Tobias Moers, Chief Executive Officer of Aston Martin Lagonda, said: “We believe our sustainability ambitions must be broader than just producing emissions-free vehicles and want to drive sustainability principles across our entire business.

“We are excited about shaping not just how quickly the world gets from zero to sixty – but how quickly we get to net zero.”
