Currently reading: Aston Martin Racing Green strategy to accelerate sustainability push
Strategy will reduce emissions, eliminate plastic waste, cut water use and promote sustainable materials

Aston Martin has announced a new sustainability strategy to accelerate its move towards reaching net-zero emissions across its entire supply chain by 2039. 

The strategy, named Racing Green, comes following Aston Martin’s membership of the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTI), which sets emissions-reduction targets using climate science data. It's also aligned with sustainable development goals set by the United Nations. 

Aston Martin will target net-zero emissions for manufacturing facilities by 2030. Other new goals for the luxury car maker include the installation of 14,000 solar panels at its site in St Athan, Wales, which it says will deliver up to 20% of the plant’s annual energy demands. 

The Racing Green strategy dictates that plastic waste will be eliminated company-wide by 2025, while water consumption will be reduced by 15%.
