a sustainability strategy based on 3 pillars
for a green future
Carbon neutrality in 2050
We have been financing electric vehicles since 2013. In 2021 it has represented around 10% of our new financings mix. We have also launched our first green deposits in the UK and some subsidiaries have defined green action plans. However, climate and environmental stakes require us to go further, and we intend to continue to build out our green initiatives to create a positive impact. Aligned with Renault Group environmental and societal strategy, we are committed to reduce our CO2 emissions, inviting our partners to join us on this journey.
