Volkswagen pushes for greener plants by 2018

Lately, almost all car manufacturers have adopted the concept of developing "green" vehicles that do not affect the environment. The most efficiet way of displaying their approach is by advertising their vehicles' low CO2 emissions. Furthermore, a new "Think Blue. Factory" initiative that is meant to make the plants more environmentally friendly, was implemented by Volkswagen, while still developing and selling greener cars. According to the plan, the environmental impact of all Volkswagen factories is going to be reduced by 25 percent until 2018 and, as the German carmaker informs, this is related to air-borne emissions, energy consumption, water consumption and carbon dioxide emissions. Hubert Waltl, Member of the Board of Management of the Volkswagen Passenger Cars, stated that the Volkswagen brand was already making a major contribution to the achievements of Group strategic targets for 2018, due to the growing productivity and efficiency of their plants. He added that by 2018 their main objective would be to reduce the environmental impact of their plants by 25 percent. The automaker's new U.S. plant at Chattanooga, Tennessee, received the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification, a proof of the factory's stricter standards concerning the environmentally compatible operation.
