The automaker plans to introduce a performance rating this year that takes account of environmental impact and social responsibility, and could add another layer that focuses specifically on each supplier's effort to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. The plan could have a massive impact on suppliers, considering VW's global footprint and procurement budget last reported at around $197 billion in 2017.

Daimler to increase focus of EVs following 7% rise in Mercedes-Benz emissions  | Sustainable Procurement News | Scoop.it

The German automotive manufacturer has revealed plans to further push electric and hybrid vehicles. This decision is in response to stricter emissions tests noting that Mercedes-Benz’s emissions rose by 7% in Europe last year. “On 17 December 2018, the European Parliament and the European Council decided to tighten the CO2 limits yet again: Car emissions are to be reduced by a further 37.5 percent from 2021 to 2030 – a demanding goal,” Daimler stated in a press release. “For Mercedes-Benz Cars, this would correspond to average emissions of 65 g CO2/km per vehicle in 2030 – this would amount to consumption of 2.4 l of diesel or 2.7 l of petrol/100 km.”

Volkswagen has unveiled its latest electric car, one that will reduce more than 1mn tonnes of Co2 per year right through the supply value chain. The Volkswagen ID has been hailed as a “pioneer of sustainable mobility” and the company has noted that the manufacturing phase alone will save more than 1mn tonnes of Co2 per year. The new car will head into production at the company’s Zwickau production plan in late 2019 and will represent a comprehensive decarbonisation programme that will see similar sustainable measures for its other models. Volkswagen will look to offer more than 20 fully electric models by 2025.
