Porsche aims for CO2-neutral balance sheet in 2030
Porsche AG has set itself an ambitious goal: in 2030, the company wants to have a CO2-neutral balance sheet across the entire value chain. The Executive Board of Porsche AG provided information on this at the annual press conference.
"In the next step, we will also demand this from our suppliers. Anyone who develops battery cells for us must manufacture them exclusively with sustainable energy," Blume announces. Batteries are still produced in a very energy-intensive way. By obliging our suppliers to use sustainable energy, the carbon footprint will improve significantly. And the battery itself will be more than 90 per cent recycable in ten years, at the latest. At the same time, we will reduce polluting substances such as cobalt in batteries in the future.

Porsche has reached another important milestone: the Taycan Cross Turismo will be the first vehicle that will be CO2-neutral throughout its use phase. Over the next ten years, Porsche will invest more than a billion euros globally in wind turbines, solar energy and other climate protection measures. For Blume, the guiding principle is clear: We don't want to compensate, but to avoid. We don't want to buy CO2 certificates from other companies, we want to avoid CO2-emissions wherever we can. Where energy cannot be saved, we use electricity from renewable sources.
The Annual Press Conference
Along with the business figures, Porsche also published its Annual and Sustainability Report.
