Lamborghini’s goal is to create value by acting responsibly towards the world in which it operates, thereby contributing to the sustainable development of society and the economy.

SUPPORTING THE UN'S SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

In 2020, Lamborghini celebrated 75 years since the establishment of the United Nations by adopting 14 of its 17 SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), continuing its commitment to supporting these goals and recognizing them as guidelines to be followed. 2021 also saw the creation of the Sustainability Project Team, an interdepartmental unit within the Company to better coordinate the activities, initiatives and projects implemented in order to further Lamborghini’s pursuit of environmental sustainability.
