Renault Trucks is committed to reduce the impact that road freight transport has on the environment. The core business of Renault Trucks scarcely generates pollution, but operating the vehicles it produces is a source of nuisance. Renault Trucks uses considerable human and financial resources to minimise these nuisances throughout the life cycle of its vehicles.
The truck building industry has achieved some spectacular results in reducing pollutant engine emissions. In 2014, nitrous oxide and particle emissions will have been reduced by 90% compared with 1990 levels.
Now, faced with the global challenge of climate change and the implication of CO2 emissions, Renault Trucks continues to develop ever more fuel efficient solutions as well as offer alternative drivelines:
- hybrid vehicles,
- full electric vehicles,
- CNG vehicles,
- optimized diesel engines,
- eco-driving training,
- fleet management,
- on-board monitoring software.
A shared commitment
In order to contribute to the introduction of efficient and lasting transport solutions, Renault Trucks implements an environment policy based on clear commitments and a rigorous system of management involving dealers, suppliers and partners as well. The manufacturing of Renault Trucks vehicles is made in 14001 certified plants. It is designed to limit raw material consumption and waste generation. Every vehicle is manufactured with the aim of reusing a maximum amount of its component materials. Thus, 92% of the parts used are recyclable.
