The company, which is among the leading manufacturers in the electric car race, as in the internal combustion engines, talked about the future of the sector. According to the statement, the company is taking many steps to make its entire supply chain ‘green’.
The most important reason why electric cars are number one in today’s automobile market is Being environmentally friendly cars that reduce carbon emissions to zero. However, for a very wide audience, electric cars they are not as innocent as they are praised.
Although they are ‘green’ compared to ‘classic’ cars with internal combustion engines, electric cars are used in many points from production to the production of electricity they use as fuel. still no carbon zero formation. This ultimately puts them in the ‘non-green’ category as well.
Many automobile giants will switch to fully electric cars by 2030-2040 in line with their carbon zero targets.
This is now the biggest target of the automobile industry. It will produce completely electric and in the coming years bring the end of internal combustion engines.
In fact, there has been a situation that has made a sound in the sector in the past few days. Toyota’s CEO, Akio Toyoda, who opposed this transition, which has controversial moves and statements in its all-electric movement, resigned.

However, one of the most important steps is the part that covers the supply chain. It is aimed to reduce the footprint of the supply chain by 20% in all materials used from aluminum to steel.
Although it may seem like a small percentage, it also represents the change in sectors covering different production and raw material areas. This rate actually indicates a significant decrease..
To build a ‘truly green’ automotive industry, not just the batteries, but the entire vehicle carbon footprint of all raw materials should be taken into account. Becker states that in order to keep the promises made to comprehensive agreements such as the Paris Climate Agreement in the future, the ‘greenness’ of cars should be evaluated with more comprehensive reports.
There is also a formation that emphasizes transparency in all steps of the supply chain in the automotive industry; Catena-X
Goals like sustainability and zero carbon aren’t just about companies. All countries around the world have targets and demands in this direction. as it stands In the future, companies will be able to respond to transparent data requests from official institutions. needs.
A country asks an automotive company ‘are you really carbon zero?’ To be able to answer when asked and to be able to To provide a transparent data flow for all supply chains Established Catena-X, according to Becker, has become one of the most important players in this regard.
Emphasizing that more than 130 companies are participating at the moment, Becker said that such steps were taken.that the sector may be ‘truly green’ for years to come He says he will help.
