Environmental Protection

Environmental protection relating to the automobile includes all measures to protect and preserve our natural livelihood.

Proactive environmental protection prevents the occurrence of negative influences such as noise and emissions through advance planning or new technologies (water-soluble paints, advanced engine management, economical driving).

Corrective environmental protection avoids the negative effects of existing conditions (such as effluent treatment, catalytic converters, noise insulation). In the automotive industry, environmental protection starts when a new vehicle or production facility is planned and built, and continues through to the reprocessing and recycling of the materials previously installed or used. The driver can also make a contribution during use through economical and conscientious operation.
