12 Apr 2022 | International News : Germany

Mercedes-Benz has announced at its first digital Environment, Social and Governance Conference that it plans to halve the total CO2 emissions per passenger car over its lifecycle by 2030 compare to 2020 levels.

In order to reach this goal, Mercedes-Benz states it has planned to have its plug-in hybrid and battery electric vehicles reach 50% of its total sales by 2025, and to become all-electric by 2030, wherever market conditions allow. Three new all-electric models are already planned from the firm, which include the EQS SUV, the EQE SUV and the EQT.

The firm is also working on supplying close to 300,000 public charging points in the Mercedes me Charge network throughout Europe with green energy, alongside transitioning to CO2-neutral cell production, which it states could cut emissions for the production of the entire battery pack by 20%.

Furthermore, Mercedes-Benz is also setting up a green steel supply chain to massively expand its use of low-CO2 and zero-CO2 steel. The firm already became the first car maker to take an equity stake in Swedish start-up H2 Green Steel, with the aim of introducing green steel in a number of production models by as early as 2025.
