Environmental Sustainability

At home in America and around the world, Volkswagen Group places environmental sustainability at the core of our operating philosophy. We don’t just talk about it, we take action, finding inventive ways to be responsible in everything we do – and everyone, including our employees, suppliers and sales partners, is equally committed to ongoing improvements and innovations. As a result, we are on our way toward our goal of becoming the world’s most environmentally sustainable automaker by 2018.

As part of our commitment to the environment, we ensure that all new facilities are built to the highest environmental standards. To date, several of our buildings around the country have been recognized by the U.S. Green Building Council and certified as Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) facilities.
