Our headquarters are located in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen, an automotive city with many suppliers in the region. This is where most of our employees and their families live. We wish to enjoy the future together which involves taking good care of the environment. For this reason, environmental protection has long been a corporate objective – one that both the management team and employees take very seriously. In 1993 Porsche initiated the Stuttgart ‘Car and environment’ Forum which enables discussion of environmental issues between representatives of the city of Stuttgart and the automotive industry along with its suppliers.
Back in 1997, Porsche formalised its internal environment protection measures, set up environmental management systems and incorporated them into its research and development activities. The company monitors and assesses environment-related performance at all locations and coordinates the planning and implementation of further measures. Our objectives are ambitious:
- To produce vehicles featuring the highest levelsof environmental and safety technology.
- To continually anticipate and assess the environmentalimpact of products and production methods.
- To keep the environmental impact of all activitiesto a minimum.
- To make careful, economical use of resources.
- To foster a responsible approach among employees,service providers, suppliers and customers.
Naturally, we also voluntarily allow our efforts to be appraised. Since 1996, the environmental impact of activities at our Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen site has been regularly monitored in accordance with the EU Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) and the international ISO 14001 standard. Our facilities in Weissach and Leipzig are likewise ISO 14001 certified. The effectiveness of our environmental management systems was last tested and approved in the ‘Best in Class’ category in June 2006.
