Meyle HD has unveiled its first climate-neutral product range in the independent aftermarket. The company aims to be climate-neutral by 2030.
Meyle is now working with ClimatePartner to compensate for the CO2 emissions associated with Meyle HD parts in the steering and suspension category. These parts are largely manufactured at the company’s own plant in Turkey, which like the Meyle headquarters in Hamburg has been certified carbon-neutral since 2021 (Scope 1 and 2 in accordance with the GHG Protocol).
Sustainability management now comprises a whole host of projects across all company departments. Our most important aim is to offer a product range that is entirely climate-neutral by 2030, with a key focus on avoiding CO2 emissions.
The company’s headquarters and SIO production facility for steering and suspension parts are already certified carbon-neutral. The next step is to make all the other sites carbon-neutral. Meyle is also making an effort to reduce its suppliers’ CO2. By using CO2-reduced materials such as “green aluminium and steel”, the company says it is planning to further reduce CO2 in the future. Thanks to a switch in packaging and shipping materials in logistics, the company says it has already reduced its use of plastic by around four tonnes a year, with further reductions still to come.
