VRCHLABÍ TO BECOME CO2-NEUTRAL THIS YEAR
THIS YEAR, THE VRCHLABÍ COMPONENT PLANT IS SET TO BECOME THE
FIRST ŠKODA AUTO SITE IN THE WORLD TO PRODUCE IN
A CO2-NEUTRAL MANNER.
The greatest carbon dioxide savings have been made by rigorously converting
the high-tech factory to the use of renewable energies – reducing CO2 emissions from an initial 45,000 tonnes per year to a current 3,000 tonnes. As a next
step, the remaining emissions will now also be offset through further compensation measures and the purchasing of CO2 certificates.
We described the Vrchlabí path to CO2-neutrality in this year’s ŠKODA Mobil May Issue
Instead of a holiday by the sea, many Czechs will spend it inside the
country's borders, leading to a more congested traffic. That’s why we are
promoting activities that improve traffic conditions and are supported
as part of the Employee Collections, grants and other projects. Safe
Friday focuses on educating children on traffic safety and prevention.
ŠKODA AUTO’s Traffic Safety Research analyzes circumstances and
development of various road accidents.

WE FILED THE MOST PATENTS
We filed 94 patent applications last year, more than any other Czech company. Most of the applications
come from our Technical Development and Production departments. Many of the innovations may be used
in the brand’s models. Among the protected innovations is e.g. the ŠKODA Scooter – a sustainable, practical
mobility solution for the last mile that can be easily folded and stored in the boot in just a few simple steps –
is registered as a protected utility model, for example.
More examples of our patents are in the press release at ŠKODA Storyboard
