Skoda delivers its electric car Enyaq Bilanziell CO2-neutral-bilanziell

The new Skoda Enyaq is not only on the street locally emission-free: The manufacturer delivers its new electric flagship Bilanziell CO2-neutral to its customers, as a current message can be found in. SKODA therefore documents CO2 emissions throughout the entire production process ISO certified and effectively reduces the release of carbon dioxide in manufacturing with numerous measures.

The previously avoiding emissions of CO2 during production is similar to Skoda with certified climate protection projects, such as building a wind farm in India. So drivers of the Enyaq can be 100 percent, green ‘on the go if you load the SUV exclusively with regenerative electricity.

Purely battery-electric vehicles such as the new SKODA Enyaq are locally and when using green electricity even completely emission-free on the road. To their ecological footprint, however, also include those CO2 emissions that arise during production. By numerous different measures, however, Skoda is able to deliver the new Enyaq Bilanziell CO2-neutral to its customers, according to its own statement.

Optimization of own manufacturing processes

For this, the company continuously optimizes the operation as well as the manufacturing processes in its own factories. The Vrchlabí component plant has been producing since the end of the year 2020 as the first Skoda site CO2-neutral. The Enyaq arises in the SKODA parent plant Mladá Boleslav, here the Czech car manufacturers with the energy service provider ČEZ builds the largest photovoltaic roof system in the Czech Republic. In the course of this decade, the entire energy required to manufacture should come from Skoda from CO2 neutral sources in the Czech works.

How to save yourself with clever ideas in detail emissions, show the app developed by Skoda Optikon. They ensure the help of artificial intelligence for the best possible utilization of the square in transport containers. In this way, more than 150 container transports could be saved in the first half of 2020 alone and thus 80 tonnes of CO2 emissions.

Monitoring the CO2 emissions along the entire supply chain

SKODA In addition to optimizing its own production processes, the CO2 emissions in its suppliers and partners in the view. The company ensures that the CO2 emissions in the supply chain, throughout the manufacturing process and in logistics, among other things, are avoided or reduced by the use of green electricity proportionately. For example, the supplier lg guarantees the use of green electricity in the production of the drive batteries for the Enyaq. Also many other partners should have assured environmentally friendly production processes.

The calculation of the remaining CO2 emissions is based on the specific life cycle assessment of the EnyaQ. This balance is certified by TuV Nord, which also verifies the further emissions. The TuV Nord confirms in certificates the correct capture of all CO2 emissions across the life cycle as well as the classification of the Enyaq as a non-CO2-neutral product at the delivery to the customers.

Recycling of vehicle and batteries

The CO2 emission over the entire life cycle is also the recycling of the Enyaq. The drive batteries are first fed to a second life in stationary energy storage after their use in the vehicle, which are set up among other things in Skoda dealers. This measure extends the useful life of the batteries and thus improves their ecological footprint. Then they are recycled and the raw materials used are recycled.

The CO2 emissions by the recycling of the vehicle is already enabled: a high recycling rate and the far-reaching use of already recycled or recyclable materials should help reduce emissions.

Emission equalization with certified projects

Part of the CO2 emissions incurred during production (suppliers and production) of a Skoda Enyaq can not be avoided. Skoda Compensates by buying certified carbon credits. This is the support of certified climate protection projects such as building a large wind farm in India. The park in Tamil Nadu in the south of the country is said to include 100 wind turbines. With a total capacity of 200 megawatts he became clean energy for 600.000 households deliver.
