German carmaker Volkswagen has released its 2014 Sustainability Report, revealing good progress toward its plan to become "the world's most sustainable automobile company."
Emissions and energy use per vehicle have fallen, while a higher percentage of waste is being recycled than ever before.
"As one of the world's largest industrial companies, we bear a special responsibility," said chairman of Volkswagen's board of management Dr. Martin Winterkorn. "And we want to use our power for the benefit of people, the environment and society. For us, sustainability is not a 'nice to have.' Sustainability is a real, measurable value driver for our business."
