Toward a Greener Future

A Systematic Approach to Protecting the Environment

Our goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2040 takes Aptiv’s mission to make the world greener beyond the products we create. Minimizing the impact of our production on the environment while protecting the communities where we operate is essential to ensuring a viable long-term business model. That’s why we take a holistic view of our operations and carefully assess and prioritize opportunities for improvement that will yield the most meaningful results.

Carbon Neutrality Goal Guides Our Actions

“We would like to convert our operations to 100 percent renewable energy sources at the flip of a switch, but we know from experience that it takes a systematic approach to make a long-term impact.

Transparency and open communication with all of our employees, suppliers and customers ensures that our people can prioritize projects that offer the most environmental benefit as we reduce our overall waste and tap into renewable energy streams. The passion and flexibility demonstrated by our whole team to meet our goals show how central sustainability is to our business model.”

  • Achieved 100% renewable electricity at all sites in Ireland and Germany, advancing toward our goal of sourcing 100% renewable energy globally by 2030
  • Certified all Aptiv manufacturing sites to the ISO 14001 international standard for measuring and improving an organization’s environmental impact

Water Conservation

  • Saved over 17.5 million liters of water
  • Although our operations are not water-intensive, we reduced water consumption at sites located in regions with water scarcity

Waste Reduction

  • Reached an 87% waste recycling rate, exceeding our 2025 goal, even with increased waste from personal protective equipment and other COVID-19 challenges

Stories of Success

Aptiv cares for our environment every day.
Here are some examples.

Packaging Reuse


Eliminated 290 tons of packaging material at a site in Singapore during 2021 by coordinating with both suppliers and customers to ensure the reusability of incoming cardboard and other packaging materials. This aligns with our commitment to increase material diversion from landfills by reducing waste generation and finding ways to increase our recycling rate to more than 80%.



Implemented a rooftop solar panel project at an Aptiv facility in Portugal, that has generated 700,000 kWh of electricity since it went live last April and eliminated about 137 tons of CO2 production. The solar panels are expected to save $40,000 per year. Solar panel installation projects at various Aptiv sites reduced CO2 production in 2021 by a total of 1,700 tons. Through on-site generation, renewable sourcing and energy efficiency, Aptiv reduced CO2 emissions by 5% from a 2019 baseline and is on target to reach 25% by 2025.



Completed the ISO 50001 energy efficiency certification at our most energy-intensive site and started the certification process on the next three most energy-intensive sites. This effort is in line with our goal of certifying our 10 most energy-intensive sites by 2025, covering one-third of our total energy usage.



Generated more than 500 employee submissions to our 19th annual internal awards for sustainability projects, a 66% increase over 2020.
