Aston Martin on the road to net zero by 2039

Aston Martin has released a sustainability strategy, setting a roadmap to net zero by 2039.

It has already achieved carbon-neutral manufacturing across its sites in St Athan and Gaydon and looks to achieve this for all sites by the end of this decade.

The luxury carmaker has also announced that it will invest in offsetting measures for Scope 1 and 2 emissions to ensure it stays on track for its target.

It is also supporting a wind farm in Turkey that will produce 575,000MWh of renewable energy each year from 120 turbines.

Aston Martin stated that since 2019, all its manufacturing sites have been powered by renewable electricity.

In 2022, the company achieved a 4% drop in carbon emissions per car made from 2021.

The first Aston Martin plug-in hybrid, the Valhalla, will be released next year.

Amedeo Felisa, Chief Executive Officer of Aston Martin Lagonda said: “Our sustainability strategy is helping to shape our transformation as we take action to turn aspirations into reality, making sustainability central to everything we do.

“In some areas, we will need to do more to accelerate progress but by continuing to intensify our focus on delivery, including achieving certified carbon-neutral manufacturing, we will achieve our ambition to become a world-leading sustainable ultra-luxury automotive business.”
