Bentley Motors Achieve Carbon Neutral Factory
Bentley Motors this week achieved carbon neutral certification for its factory headquarters in Crewe, England, taking another step to becoming the world’s most sustainable luxury automotive manufacturer.
Earlier this year, the UK’s largest solar car port, comprising 10,000 solar panels, was installed at Bentley’s factory site in Crewe. The installation has a capacity of 2.7MW and covers 1,378 car parking spaces – an area of 16,426m². Adding to the 20,815 roof top panels already fitted, it took the total on-site solar panel energy capacity to 7.7MW, enough to cover over 1,750 homes.
Whether it be through the introduction of alternative powertrain technologies, the use of sustainable materials and practices, or its work reducing the environmental impact of its factory, Bentley is making a long-term strategic commitment to delivering sustainable luxury mobility.
