Our shared responsibility
The aim of our sustainable development approach in the field of mobility is to cut greenhouse gas emissions, to protect natural resources and to develop new mobility behaviours that respect the environment.
DEVELOPING EFFICIENT TECHNOLOGIES
Reduce our carbon footprint while continuing to innovate
Hybrid 4 x 4 technology combines the performance of a diesel engine with the advantages of electric power.
Puretech petrol engines ally reduced fuel consumption with enhanced performance.
BlueHDi engines significantly reduce pollutant diesel emissions with the SCR system.
SELECTING GREEN MATERIALS
Using recycled or natural materials reduces our carbon footprint.
Environmental constraints are factored in right from the design stage. By placing the emphasis on natural materials, already recycled or designed for this purpose, we create a virtuous circle. Eco-design limits the impact of each vehicle on the environment.
WHAT DO WE CALL GREEN MATERIALS?
Three families of materials
USING AND MANAGING RECYCLED MATERIALS
Some parts are made exclusively or primarily from green materials. For example, the wheel covers are made from recycled polyamide, the scuttle panel grille mounting from recycled polypropylene and the glass felt soundproofing material used for the screen is made from recycled glass.
From January 2015, a new logo, 'The Triman', appeared on recyclable products.
The new logo informs the consumer that the product or the packaging must not be thrown in the waste bin, but must be separated and placed in a recycle facility.
The new logo can be found on the product, the packaging or in a virtual form on the website.
Our products/packaging may carry the new logo including: Tyres, paper and cardboard packagings, and printed documents.
Electronic waste is not included, neither are batteries and chemicals already identified with the crossed bin logo.
Recycling, a virtuous circle
End-of-life vehicles are collected by the network and processed in a way that respects the environment. Each vehicle is disassembled and its parts decontaminated
where necessary. This operation is made easier by the fact that disassembly is factored in from design.
Eco-driving by a sustainable driver
REDUCE YOUR SPEED
- 10 kph = savings of up to 2 litres of fuel per 100 km
REDUCE YOUR LOAD:
An additional 100 kg in the boot = a 5% increase in fuel consumption**
CHECK YOUR TYRE PRESSURE
Pressure down by 0.5 bars = consumption increased by 2.4%**
KEEP YOUR VEHICLE IN GOOD GENERAL REPAIR
Oil change, air filter… = fuel savings of up to 25%**
