Extraction of raw materials and production of parts accounted for 15 per cent of the carbon footprint of Renault Group vehicles in 2020. Embarking its 15,000 suppliers on a campaign to reduce that environmental impact is one of the strategic priorities.

Six materials and components add up to 90 per cent of the carbon footprint of purchases: steel, aluminium, polymers, electronic components, glass and tyres. By focusing efforts on these six materials and components between now and 2030, Renault Group aims to shrink this carbon footprint by 30 per cent.
