Stefano Domenicali, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. confirms in an open letter that The Italian sports carmaker’s commitment to the environment continues as the business grows.
"2019 has certainly been the year that has given us the greatest number of achievements. Deliveries to customers worldwide increased 43% from 5,750 to 8,205 vehicles, a new record result as we fuel our growth globally.
Our commitment to the environment is also still strong. As a company, we feel our responsibility to make a major and tangible contribution to the crucial theme of sustainability through product and process innovation. We strive to be pioneers of sustainable development by developing cutting-edge technologies and virtuous processes that allow us to manage our impact, avoid waste, control consumption and prevent pollution.
In 2019, we focused on the launch of the new paint shop for the Urus super SUV. The paint shop includes state-of-the-art energy-efficient Class A systems and state-of-the-art LED lighting. 95% of the colors used are water-based and solvent emissions are very low thanks to a centralized purification system which recovers the heat used in the production process.
We have also promoted greater awareness and culture around the theme of sustainability through various campaigns. From our now plastic-free restaurant to educational meetings in collaboration with The Climate Reality Project, we have spared no effort to support and encourage change, educate employees about the climate crisis and promote solutions to counter its effects through energy transition and sustainable mobility. These meetings helped us to reflect on the meaning and effects of the climate crisis we are going through and to understand what we can do to change things.
We were honored to participate in the program and bear witness to the message that we are all responsible for fighting climate change through our actions towards the environment and our community and that we can all do our part.
Through our Environmental Declaration, we wish to underline the importance for us to pursue an industrial development which takes into account the community and the environment in the broad sense: their safeguard is at the center of all our actions, and through our work we seek to serve as a model for the whole community. Protecting the world we live in is a key part of our business behavior. This is why all members of the Lamborghini family can think of society with great satisfaction and are proud to be part of it.
