Vitesco joins Polestar 0 project to develop zero-carbon emissions inver
Vitesco Technologies, a leading international supplier of modern powertrain technologies and electric mobility solutions, has joined the Polestar 0 project, an initiative to create the world’s first completely climate-neutral vehicle. Vitesco Technologies has been selected as a collaboration partner to develop the power electronics with the target to achieve a zero-carbon emissions inver for the production vehicle application in 2030. Vitesco Technologies has set the goal of being carbon-neutral across its entire value chain by 2040. This means, not least, making all products climate-neutral step by step. Vitesco Technologies already has more than eight years of experience in the field of lifecycle assessment. The company will share this extensive know-how through the Polestar 0 project. A wide range of institutions are collaborating together in an unprecedented open network to support this initiative: Research institutes, investors, government organizations and companies—large automotive groups and suppliers as well as small start-ups. Together, they aim to identify and eliminate all climate-damaging factors in the lifecycle without exception: from raw material extraction, material processing and production to transport and product disposal.
