The Transparent Factory was Volkswagen's first climate-neutral location. Although there is no press plant in Dresden, car production here is very energy-intensive due to the numerous robots, the electric monorail system and the driverless transport systems. To ensure that Volkswagen meets its self-imposed goal of CO2-neutral production, a wide range of measures are implemented at the site.
Assembly of the parts supplied in the Transparent Factory is climate-neutral. Using natural electricity from 100 percent hydropower, we save 3,600 tonnes of CO2 every year. TÜV-certified green electricity helps to reduce the overall ecological footprint of the Volkswagen brand.
