Mercedes-Benz has agreed on a sustainability partnership with Farasis Energy Co Ltd to take a holistic approach along the entire value chain.

Mr Markus Schafer, Member of the Daimler AG Board of Management responsible for Corporate Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development said that “With Ambition 2039, we have set the course for sustainable mobility. In addition to the consistent electrification of our product portfolio, we also look at the supply chain to realise our long-term objective of climate neutrality: part of the battery cells for the next vehicle generation of our EQ product and technology brand are already to be produced using 100 % electricity from renewable energies.”

By sourcing batteries from carbon-neutral production, we are making another important contribution on the road to a carbon-neutral new passenger car fleet in twenty years. The partnership with Farasis Energy (Ganzhou) Co Ltd comprises the production of battery cells produced with electricity from renewable energies as well as the subject of recycling and the observance of human rights in the supply chain.
