Škoda Auto Volkswagen India generates pledges
On Earth Day 2023, Skoda Auto Volkswagen India Private Limited (SAVWIPL) generated over 3800+ pledges for environmental sustainability at a special event attended by officials from the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, the Management team from the CII-CESD (CII Centre of Excellence on Sustainable Development), the dealer fraternity, supply chain partners, and Group employees. The company restated its commitment to supporting sustainable practices and decreasing its carbon footprint, as well as its aim of attaining carbon neutrality in line with Paris 2050 climate targets through a comprehensive strategy covering global, corporate, and individual responsibilities.
Skoda Auto Volkswagen India’s #IamINvested campaign seeks to urge individuals to contribute to climate change and start a chain reaction by nominating their coworkers to join the cause. The program gained popularity among Group workers and had a multiplier effect, with each pledge ambassador proposing two colleagues to join the project.
“On Earth Day, we are focusing on three key areas: energy and decarbonisation, waste and circularity, and healthy lifestyle,” said Piyush Arora, Managing Director and CEO of koda Auto Volkswagen India. Our Group’s persistent efforts and steady growth in decarbonization, zero waste, water conservation, social responsibility, Biodiversity, and Compliance Resilience & Responsibility have helped us stay loyal to our environmental and sustainability goals. This year, we’re taking our efforts a step further.

At its Pune factory, the firm recently unveiled one of the automotive industry’s largest solar-power rooftops. Following this extension, the solar rooftop will cover up to 30% of the plant’s entire energy usage. This achievement occurred shortly after SAVWIPL’s Aurangabad plant switched to 100 percent green energy late last year.
SKODA AUTOMOTIVE Volkswagen India is a Zero Waste to Landfill and Net Water Positive company. Furthermore, DQS India awarded the organization a Gold level grade for its Water Conservation initiatives both within the Aurangabad and Pune production sites and beyond the gate.
The Volkswagen Group aspires to be net carbon neutral by 2050 as part of its ‘goTOzero’ objective.
