Sustainable Development

Our efforts to protect the environment go further than just low emissions and excellent fuel economy. We also put great care in eco friendly manufacturing process and recycling.

Although we have increased our production threefold since 1991, the environmental effects were not increased – in many areas, there’s even a significant improvement. It required massive investments of 10.3 billion CZK in improvements like more efficient power station, cutting edge paint shops and water treatment plants or energy saving measures.

As evidenced by our compliance with the worldwide ISO 14001:2004 standard, we go above and beyond the lawful duties in the field of environmental protection. But our concerns do not end with the sale of a car. ŠKODA AUTO also provides the ecological disposal of the vehicle when it reaches the end of its useful life.
