Mercedes-Benz:All Cars Will Be Carbon-Neutral By 2039

MERCEDES-BENZ'S AGGRESSIVE CLIMATE PLEDGE: ALL CARS WILL BE CARBON-NEUTRAL BY 2039

(CNN) – Mercedes-Benz wants to make all of its new passenger cars carbon-neutral within two decades.

The company made the pledge Monday.

Mercedes said the goal means a ‘fundamental transformation of our company.’

Execs say it is making the overhaul explicit because of environmental concerns.

Mercedes also plans to lean on wind-power and other forms of clean energy to make its vast manufacturing operations cleaner.

Volkswagen and other major auto makers have made similar, but less aggressive, carbon-neutral manufacturing goals.
