Volkswagen India has successfully managed to implement the ideas of the company's global 'Think Blue. Factory' environment initiatives in its Pune plant. Through the use of several ‘green' ideas VW's Chakan plant has managed to bring down CO2 emissions by 6.4 per cent and energy consumption by 5.5 per cent.

VW's ‘Think Blu. Factory' program was started in 2011 globally and was implemented by Volkswagen’s Chakan plant in Pune, India in 2013. The measures adopted under this initiative focussed on cutting down the impact on environment caused by the manufacturing processes. The results of these measures were gauged based on five factors - energy consumption, CO2 emissions, water consumption, waster generation and VOC (volatile organic compounds) emission. The program also looks to improve self dependency in terms of resources. 

Mr Andreas Lauenroth, Executive Director - Technical, Volkswagen India Private Limited, said, “In the last two years, our teams have worked vigorously towards achieving the set goals and they will continue to strengthen our commitment towards environment. I am proud that we were able to cut down on the waste generation in excess of 20% this year. I am sure that our water saving actions of over 17% are extremely important given the fact that there is a lot of scarcity of water in the neighboring areas.” He added, “We have various projects under investigation and we will go on implementing them once we have evaluated the savings from each one of them. There will be no compromise in our commitment towards environment.”
