Skoda Sustainability

Skoda identifies that sustainability for them means “economic and social development in line with ecosystems capacities and the preservation of biodiversity for present and future generations.” This includes their CSR strategy, their GreenFuture environmental strategy, and principles of ethical and transparent behaviour.

Their focus on the environment comes from aspiring to minimise the environmental impacts along the life cycle of their vehicles from raw material extraction right the way along to end of life. This means being compliant with environmental regulations and standards but also taking on voluntary actions to keep ecosystems intact and to create positive impacts on society.

By 2025 the brand plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions of passenger cars and light vehicles by 30% compared to 2015, reduce the production-based environmental externalities by 45% per vehicle compared to 2010, and increase the share of battery electric vehicles in the model portfolio to 20-25%.
