Continental Sets 2050 Target

Continental aims to fulfill its ambition of reaching carbon neutrality along the company's entire value chain, emission-free mobility and industry, a circular economy and responsible value chains by 2050.

The technology's approach with its Net|Zero|Now immediate action program for climate change mitigation is based on recommendations of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate change and relies on the principle of negative emissions and goes beyond conventional carbon offsetting. The program complements the reduction measures implemented by the company to date and sustainable innovations such as the Conti GreenConcept tire, which are designed to achieve carbon neutrality in line with the Paris climate agreement now.

“2021 in particular, with its devastating floods and forest fires, showed that climate change mitigation needs to be accelerated. We must use every means available to implement measures faster,” said Tamara Snow, Sustainability Officer North America, in a statement. “At the same time, we must seize the opportunities associated with this transformation together with our partners.”

The focus of Net|Zero|Now is on Continental products and systems that are used in emission-free vehicles from EVs to hydrogen-powered buses and streetcars. Continental generated sales of almost €1 billion with emission-free mobility in the past fiscal year and the 10 highest-volume electric vehicle brands worldwide in 2021 used Continental’s technology.
