Automobili Lamborghini is committed to ensuring that its economic and business goals are consistent with the continuous improvement of environmental protection and energy efficiency.
The company is developing an integrated environmental strategy based on innovations in both its production processes and its products. Its commitment includes the goal of making the entire production facility CO2-neutral by 2015.
The construction of an integrated photovoltaic plant with an area of 17,000 square meters on the facility is part of this commitment.
Also, Automobili Lamborghini is the first and only auto manufacturer in Italy to have earned EMAS environmental certification. The important accreditation was awarded in July 2009, just a few months after the company received ISO 14001 certification for meeting international standards on environmental management.
2011 saw the opening of Lamborghini Park. It was devoted to the “Lamborghini for Biodiversity - Oak Forest Research Project”, for which more than 10,000 young oak trees were planted on an area of approximately 70,000 square meters in the town of Sant’Agata Bolognese. This experimental study examined the relationships between plants, their density, the climate and CO2, and was carried out in cooperation with the town of Sant’Agata Bolognese and the Universities of Bologna and Bolzano in Italy, and the University of Munich in Germany.
In 2011, Automobili Lamborghini also became the first auto manufacturer in Italy to be granted ISO 50001 certification, thus reaffirming the company’s strong commitment to improving its energy performance in every field on an ongoing basis.
In November 2012, Lamborghini signed an agreement with the Ministry of the Environment and of Land and Sea Protection- the first ever in Italy in the automotive field - regarding joint projects for enhancing the environmental sustainability of production processes and products.
Thanks to this agreement, a method was established for analysing CO2 emissions and calculating the total produced (carbon footprint) during the production process for carbon fibre monocoques and components, so that such emissions could be reduced and/or neutralised.
After the project was completed, Lamborghini obtained ISO 14064 certification in September 2013 - such certification is the first in the world to be issued by the DNV society.
