Volkswagen is making considerable progress in its efforts to further improve the environmental compatibility of automobile production. This is confirmed by the second “Think Blue. Factory.” annual meeting in Wolfsburg, which was attended by more than 350 environmental experts from 27 plants of the Volkswagen Passenger Cars and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles brands.
It was in 2011 that Volkswagen launched the “Think Blue. Factory.” program under the motto of “More sustainability – less environmental impact”. The objective of the program is to continuously improve the environmental compatibility of production. By 2018, waste production, water consumption and solvent and carbon dioxide emissions are to be reduced by 25 percent. “Think Blue. Factory.” is part of “Think Blue.” – The Volkswagen brand’s holistic initiative for greater environmental sustainability.
