As an internationally competitive company, we do see it as our duty to contribute to the resolution of social, cultural and environmental issues - especially with regards to environmental protection, sustainability and global emission reduction.
Our understanding of sustainability is closely linked to our corporate values - pioneering spirit, customer orientation, problem-solving competence, responsibility and independence.
Reimagining Motion for a better, safer, greener world of mobility
The work at AVL reflects a deep understanding of our responsibility towards society and respect for nature. Through sustainable design and sustainable development we are reducing the CO2-footprint of the drive train in all life cycle phases and at the same time taking affordability for the end user into account .
The sustainable use of resources and the ambitious goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions will change the transport sector significantly in the upcoming years, especially topics such as e-mobility and a well-balanced, efficient and environmentally friendly mix of propulsion systems are going to play a central role. Together with the rise of renewable and alternative energy sources, there will be a large number of different development scenarios in the coming decade.
As a company that is always driven by innovation, we believe that a combination of economic success, social compatibility and careful use of natural resources must be at the heart of everything we do. We owe this to the planet and to all our descendants.
