      Continental’s sustainability ambition

      • Sustainability is the key driver of innovation at Continental and is firmly embedded in our strategy. After all, sustainable business and sustainable management ensure profitable growth and provide competitive advantages.
      • Our holistic approach – four prongs consisting of carbon neutrality along the entire value chain, emission-free mobility and industry, a fully circular economy and a fully responsible value chain – sets a new standard in the supplier industry.
      • We will proceed with courage and conviction, but we are also fully aware that we don’t yet have an answer to every question and that this will be a marathon.
      • Climate protection is often associated with sacrifice. We see it quite differently: The transformation of the economy toward carbon neutrality is above all a tremendous opportunity – for the planet but also in commercial terms for our company. We want to boldly take advantage of the opportunities offered to us as pioneers.
      • Carbon neutrality, emission-free mobility and industry, a circular economy and responsible value chains are the main channels of transformation to a more sustainable economy. Continental can therefore have only one ambition: to achieve 100 percent in each area by 2050 at the latest, and together with our partners throughout the value chain.
      • We are fully committed to the Paris Agreement. At the end of 2020, the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) confirmed that our targets are in line with this agreement.

      Back to overview sustainability.
