Lamborghini factory in Italy to be powered by biomethane

MANILA: Automobili Lamborghini has announced the implementation of a biomethane installation to supply power to its Sant’Agata Bolognese facility in Italy. The system will generate about four million cubic meters per year, or around 65% of the company’s current gas requirements. It will reduce CO2 emissions from 37% to around 80%, equivalent to a total of over 11,000 tons of CO2 per year.

This initiative toward sustainability continues the concrete actions done by Lamborghini that will result in a significant reduction in emissions in just a few years.

In a statement, Automobili Lamborghini Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Stephan Winkelmann said, “In the area of sustainability, Lamborghini was a trailblazer in the automotive industry, at a time when the issue was not yet being addressed by large companies, or only partially. Our commitment started in 2009 through a series of programs and investments, which in 2015 led us to achieve “CO2-neutral” certification for the entire facility. And today, our path is accelerating with the goal of going from a CO2-neutral production site to a CO2-neutral company through a holistic approach involving the product, factory, logistics, and supply chain.”

Lamborghini’s previous sustainability programs include the creation of a park with 10,000 oak trees, bio-monitoring projects with bees, the construction of one of the largest photovoltaic systems in Emilia-Romagna, Italy, the creation of a trigeneration and district heating plant, and the recent launch of the sustainable logistics projects.

With the goal of developing an even more sustainable future, Lamborghini is involved in an ambitious program known as “Direzione Cor Tauri,” a transformation process that will result in having the entire product range completely hybrid by 2024 and the introduction of a fourth fully electric model by 2030. It is driven by the largest investment in Lamborghini’s history—€1.5 billion (approximately P88.202 billion) over four years.
