Environmental protection is a fixed component of our company policy. For us the economy and the environment need not be mutually exclusive: they can form the basis of sustainable value creation at Continental.
Our corporate strategy is focused on climate protection and energy efficiency. All our products should play an active part in conserving our environment and resources.
In production, we plan to continuously reduce energy and water consumption, CO2 emissions and waste, while simultaneously increasing the recycling rate for operational waste.
This is why Continental environmental management covers the entire life cycle of our products – from research and development, through purchasing, logistics and production, to their use and subsequent recycling. Given the increasing scarcity of raw materials, our aim is to develop products and solutions that consume less energy and conserve our natural resources – both during production and when our products are in use.
