Strategy of environmentally friendly production

Focus on the environment does not merely mean environmentally friendly cars. In 2011 Volkswagen Slovakia therefore adopted a common strategy for the environmentally friendly production of cars by the Volkswagen brand called Think Blue. Factory. Its aim is to stand at the forefront of the automotive industry by 2018, both from economic and environmental viewpoints.

Part of this aim is to reach a 25 % reduction in five environmental indicators in comparison with 2010:
- energy consumption
- water consumption
- amount of produced and disposed waste
- amount of CO2 emissions produced
- and the amount of emissions of volatile organic compounds produced

Volkswagen’s Think Blue. Factory. strategy is carrying out the vision of environmentally friendly mobility, the efficient use of natural resources and sustainable development.
