Lamborghini Found A Way To Dramatically Lower CO2 Emissions

Industry News / Comments

Sustainability still matters to this purveyor of V12 exotics.

Lamborghini is not the first company that springs to mind when one thinks of a reduction in carbon emissions. As recently as August, the company reaffirmed its commitment to V12 powerplants. The new Lamborghini Countach continues this fine tradition, even though it is enhanced with electric assistance. But there are other ways for the Italian marque to reach its sustainability goals and the company is doing just that at its Sant'Agata Bolognese site. Lamborghini has implemented a biomethane installation to help meet the site's gas requirements. It will lower CO2 emissions considerably from 2023.

This system will provide close to four million cubic meters per year, which works out to about 65 percent of Lamborghini's gas requirements. This will lower CO2 emissions from 37% currently to around 80%. That's the equivalent of over 11,000 tons of CO2 over a period of a year. The new biomethane installation is not the first sign that Lamborghini takes sustainability seriously. The company has already created a park with 10,000 oak trees and initiated bio-monitoring projects with bees. All of these projects exist alongside a gradually transforming lineup of cars that will all be hybridized by 2024.

"In the area of sustainability, Lamborghini was a trailblazer in the automotive industry, at a time when the issue was not yet being addressed by larger companies, or only partially," said Chairman and CEO of Lamborghini Automobili, Stephan Winkelmann. "Our commitment started in 2009 through a series of programs and investments, which in 2015 led us to achieve 'CO2-neutral' certification for the entire facility."

Lamborghini's next goal is to move from a CO2-neutral production site to being an entirely CO2-neutral company. Hybrids like the Lamborghini Sian are only the beginning of a sea change at the company. By 2030, the brand will have introduced its fourth fully electric model. One of these EVs is expected to be a grand tourer with a 2+2 seating layout.
