Volkswagen Group is making faster progress towards sustainable and efficient production. At the same time, the company continues to make good progress towards reducing its production costs. Member of the Board of Management of the Volkswagen Group and Chairman of the Board of Porsche AG Mr Oliver Blume said "We are producing more environmentally friendly than ever. From 2010 to the end of 2019, the environmental impact per produced vehicle is expected to drop by more than 37 per cent.”

To address offsetting trends, performance measures estimated at one billion euros are also being made in production, and productivity is increasing by six per cent. The following five criteria flow into the assessment of environmental impact per vehicle: CO2 emissions, energy use, water use and solvent use, and generated waste. In the past two years alone, CO2 emissions per vehicle were reduced by more than ten per cent.

The Group is also making good progress towards attaining the target of improving manufacturing productivity by 30 percent over the period 2016 to 2025. This year, productivity is expected to be six per cent above the prior year level, and it is production sites outside of Germany which have made the most significant contributions here. The improvement is better than originally planned.

In sum, investments for performance measures in the Group in 2019 are estimated to be one billion euros, before offsetting effects such as inflation and tariff increases.
