For several years, Lamborghini has adopted an eco-sustainable environmental policy based on a full-range vision that from the product embraces the Sant’Agata Bolognese facility, passing from the production lines to the offices. The sustainability path in the local area, launched in 2009, originated many projects and paved the way to an even greener future.
Today, in our #Focu5on format, we will tell you about 5 important goals that Lamborghini has reached with this approach:
With the creation of the Lamborghini Park of Sant’Agata Bolognese in 2011, which involved planting 10,000 oak trees, about 330 tons of CO2 have been absorbed in ten years. An amazing result!
The Lamborghini photovoltaic plant, the largest in Emilia Romagna, was created in 2010 and has allowed 2000 tons of CO2 to be reduced. Not bad, eh?
Lamborghini has also rescued our bee friends by installing an apiary with about 600,000 bees inside the Lamborghini Park in 2016. Thanks to the biomonitoring activity, every year 430 kg of honey are produced, which is distributed to employees as a Christmas gift.
In 2020, Lamborghini recovered 56% of all special waste produced by the production activity, preventing it from going to the landfill or other disposal processes, also with the aid of two circular economy projects. The carbon fiber waste, for example, is used for educational purposes or for making subproducts such as gadgets, while the leather residue is given new lift by turning it into personalized small leather goods. Nothing is thrown away!
Lamborghini is the first company in Italy of the automotive sector to have a district heating plant that supplies 2,500,000 kWht of thermal energy every year, an amount equivalent to the annual energy requirement for heating 156 apartments each 100 square meters in size. An outstanding example of circular energy.
