"We strive to be pioneers of sustainability by developing cutting-edge technologies and virtuous processes that allow us to manage our impact, avoid waste, control consumption and prevent pollution."
In 2019, the builder's efforts focused in particular on the opening of a new paint shop for the Urus SUV. In addition to the space itself, which hosts a Class A LED lighting system in particular, this workshop uses 95% of water-based colors, and guarantees very low solvent emissions thanks to a system centralized treatment plant which recovers the heat used in the production process.
In addition, Lamborghini, which has also introduced the “plastic-free” rule in its restaurant, is also participating in specific educational projects implemented in collaboration with “The Climate Reality Project”. Meetings that aim to promote solutions to counter the effects of the climate crisis through energy transition and sustainable mobility.

This is why all members of the Lamborghini family can think of our company with great satisfaction, and are proud to be part of it. ”
