We recognise the great value recycling has in helping us protect the environment by reducing the demand we place on natural resources and reducing the amount of waste we create that cannot be put to good use. We design our vehicles using parts and materials that can be used again, whether they are reprocessed for use in manufacturing, recycled, or used in a completely different way, for example as an alternative source of energy.
We are required by European law to make sure our vehicles are at least 85% recyclable and 95% recoverable, but we go further to make this process as simple and efficient as possible. We use initiatives such as parts marking and active co-operation with specialist partners to discover even better ways of recycling the vehicles of the future.
