Join us on our journey towards sustainability

Introducing our partners in green

    Ohme Wallboxes

    The best way to minimise charge costs is to charge at home. Volkswagen recommend Ohme as our preferred wallbox supplier. Your local retailer can help you order and guide you through the process.

    OVO Energy

    With OVO Charge Anytime, you can charge your Volkswagen EV for just 7p per kWh anytime you charge your EV from home. Charge Anytime is free to add to any OVO plan and, unlike others, allows you to charge at a reduced rate any time of the day- the clue is in the name. You’ll also get personalised insights into your charging habits and see how much money you’re saving with Charge Anytime credits. All of this can be managed through the OVO app.

    We’re on a mission to reduce the amount of carbon the world produces. But we can’t do it alone. We need you on board too. That’s why we’ve partnered with iOffset. They’ve created the Carbon Offset Tool – all you have to do is use the tool to measure your emissions and calculate the offset cost. You can then pledge the amount to be invested in environmental projects.

Optimising our supply chain

We also want to drive forward the use of green electricity and recycled materials in the upstream supply chain – in view of the large number of components, suppliers and sub-suppliers, this is a very complex task to which we are devoting all our energy. For example, we have stipulated that our suppliers must use green electricity when producing the battery cells.
We see offsetting carbon emissions through certified climate protection projects as an immediate measure to compensate for unavoidable emissions and as a step on the path towards our goal of becoming a company with a carbon-neutral1 balance.

Green electricity for our plants

We are working on reducing the carbon emissions of our plants all over the world. Our aim is to halve the carbon emissions of the plants by 2025 (compared with 2010). We will achieve this by making even greater use of green electricity in energy-efficient sites, for example. This will allow us to move ever closer towards our goal of becoming a company with a carbon-neutral1 balance.

Important information :

Carbon emissions will be avoided and reduced directly at Volkswagen where possible. Upstream suppliers are obliged correspondingly to avoid and reduce emissions. Carbon emissions that cannot be avoided and reduced at Volkswagen and by corresponding commitments in the supply chain will be offset to the equivalent amount in certified climate protection projects.
