Veoneer’s portfolio of technologies supports the Sustainable Development Goal #3 — halving the number of global deaths and injuries from road traffic accidents. Traffic safety is, together with the climate challenge, two of the global challenges where the automotive industry has a responsibility to act for a sustainable future.
Veoneer’s Board of Directors has set ambitious targets related to the climate. The company acts in three steps along its’ entire value chain:
Today, 67% of the electricity consumption in Veoneer’s manufacturing facilities is fossil free. Front-runners are the manufacturing facilities in Sweden (100% fossil free), followed by Canada (93% fossil free) and France (92% fossil free).
“Veoneer’s ambitious climate-related targets will strengthen our customers’ ambitions in reducing their supply chain emissions,” says Jan Carlson, Chairman, President and CEO of Veoneer.
