Polestar’s sustainability strides in 2023 aren’t just for show – they’re backed by concrete action. With a laser focus on smarter material choices, renewable energy in production, and efficiency gains, they’ve slashed emissions by 3.4 tCO2e compared to 2022. This isn’t just about one year’s success – it’s a blueprint for decoupling growth from emissions hikes, setting the pace for a greener automotive industry.

Fredrika Klarén, Polestar’s Head of Sustainability, commented: 

“Our vision is clear – we want to accelerate the EV-transition while bringing in more sustainable and innovative solutions to make electric cars even better. We need to acknowledge that our industry still has a huge potential for improvement when it comes to disclosing concrete plans for achieving its climate pledges. This year we are sharing the work we do to make our climate roadmap more concrete, as we navigate towards our 2040 climate goal.”

But Polestar doesn’t stop at emissions – they’ve raised the bar on transparency too. In 2023, they ramped up traceability efforts, now tracking lithium and nickel in Polestar 3’s batteries alongside cobalt and mica. With blockchain tech already monitoring cobalt and mica since 2020 and 2021 respectively, Polestar’s commitment to sustainability spans every inch of their supply chain.

Polestar’s Sustainability Report is more than just numbers – it’s a testament to their commitment to transparency and accountability. By adopting a due diligence approach, they’re not just identifying sustainability risks, they’re actively mitigating them. The introduction of a digital platform in 2023 showcases their dedication to streamlining data collection, ensuring transparency, and adhering to the highest standards and regulations. Polestar isn’t just driving towards a greener future, they’re setting the standard for sustainable practices in the automotive industry.
