      Continental is taking sustainability to an entirely new level

      Technology company Continental is going on the offensive with respect to the central theme of the sustainability of humankind, and has set itself some ambitious goals in this respect. Four focus areas are at the heart of the action. Firstly, 100% carbon neutrality along the entire value chain. Secondly, 100% emission-free mobility and industry. Thirdly, 100% closed resource and product cycles driven by circular economy, and fourthly, 100% responsible sourcing and business partnerships.

      By 2050 at the latest, these four objectives are to be achieved together with all partners along the value chain. In particular when it comes to emission-free mobility and climate protection, Continental is stepping things up a gear: From 2022, business with vehicle components for emission-free mobility will be entirely carbon-neutral, from the raw materials right through to the end of the vehicle’s service life. All electricity procured by Continental has been carbon-neutral since 2020. Continental has thus adopted one of the most comprehensive sustainability roadmaps in the vehicle supplier industry, thus paving the way for a new global industry benchmark. For technology company Continental, sustainability means one thing above all else: a tremendous opportunity.

      Consistently pursuing the path toward transformation

      The world and the global economy find themselves at the start of a new era. The path toward transformation to a sustainable economy is clear. While the solutions have not all been fully developed yet, we are establishing the framework for Continental and its partners. Sustainability has long been one of the key drivers of innovation at Continental. Now, as part of its new corporate strategy that was unveiled in December 2020, the company plans to also systematically seize the opportunities that arise as a result of the sustainability transformation.

      Dr. Ariane Reinhart:

      “Sustainable business is the future. It is both an expression of an inner attitude and a forward-looking way of thinking, With our ambitious sustainability roadmap, we are decisively pursuing the transformation to a sustainable economy. This is the decisive benchmark for us and for the entire mobility industry.”
