ŠKODA AUTO to use emission-free power for production
As part of its GreenFuture strategy, ŠKODA AUTO has set a target
that by the end of the decade, the energy used for the production of
vehicles and components at its plants in the Czech Republic will
come from carbon-neutral sources. The high-tech plant in Vrchlabí is
a pioneer. By the end of 2021, the company plans to replace natural
gas with CO2-neutral methane from biogas plants. ŠKODA uses
technologies from Industry 4.0 to reduce its environmental impact
throughout the value chain. The AI-based OPTIKON app, among
other things, calculates the best way to place pallets in containers
and saved 505 shipments in 2020 alone, which corresponds to
a saving of 180 tonnes of CO2 emissions.
