Lamborghini: Visionary, Pure and Cutting-Edge
It was back in 1963 that the first Lamborghini rolled out of the factory gates at Sant‘ Agata Bolognese. Ever since, the plant, which is still the heart of the company, has been manufacturing these legendary super sports cars. Lamborghini has been part of the Volkswagen Group since 1998 and continues to enjoy worldwide renown as a maker of fascinating and exclusive models. Today, Lamborghini develops and builds cars at its only site in Italy where in 2014 the company’s 1,175 employees manufactured 2,400 vehicles, generating sales revenue of € 586 million.
Committed to Environmental Protection
As part of its long-term strategy, the management team at Lamborghini is committed to align its economic and business goals with the concept of environmental protection and the ongoing improvement of environmental conditions and energy efficiency. In carrying out its operations, Lamborghini endeavors to conserve natural resources and energy and to protect human health in the best way possible. This commitment takes tangible form in the development, application and monitoring of an Environmental Management System and Energy Management System which complies with the international standards UNI EN ISO 14001 & EMAS and ISO 50001, as well as with UNI EN ISO 14064 in terms of carbon footprint (CO2 emission inventory).
Environmental Goals Defined
Within Lamborghini’s environmental strategy, concrete goals and actions have been defined. Based on innovative products and processes, the company has set itself the goal of cutting the CO2 emissions of its fleet and becoming a carbon-neutral operation by 2015. Some key emission-reduction measures have already been implemented: the installation of three photovoltaic power plants, two on the roof of the production buildings and one on the car park. Together these systems can cut annual CO2 emissions by approximately 3,084 tonnes.
