Currently reading: Polestar: Car makers must collaborate on climate goals
Sustainability boss says it is “annoying” that there has been little teamwork with other OEMs on climate

Polestar’s sustainability chief has called for greater collaboration within the automotive industry in order to accelerate carbon reduction efforts within the sector.

The Sino-Swedish electric vehicle manufacturer has pushed a range of sustainability initiatives, including a commitment to publishing a full life-cycle carbon assessment report for every model, and the Polestar 0 project to develop and launch a ‘truly’ net-zero production model by 2030.

Polestar is collaborating with a number of companies in a range of other sectors on the 0 project, but Fredrika Klarén, the firm’s head of sustainability, has admitted it is “annoying” that there has so far been little collaboration with other OEMs.

“What we’re trying to achieve is bigger than Polestar,” said Klarén.
