Mercedes India to become carbon neutral by Dec 2022

Mercedes has also made it mandatory for its vendors to set a roadmap to achieve carbon neutrality by 2039.

Mercedes-Benz India has set an ambitious target to become carbon neutral. The company aims to have a completely sustainable production process by December 2022.

To achieve this, Mercedes-Benz India plans to set up a 3.6 MW solar-powered generation plant by the end of this year. It is expected to satisfy around 50% of its energy requirement and is estimated to reduce annual CO2 emissions by 3,700 tons.

The carmaker plans to purchase international renewable energy certificates to offset a part of its carbon footprint. In a bid to become 100% carbon neutral, Mercedes has also made it mandatory for its vendors to set a roadmap to achieve carbon neutrality by 2039.
