At Volkswagen Group of America we take environmental responsibility very seriously. When it comes to making our cars as green as possible, Volkswagen has an integrated strategy focused on reducing fuel consumption and emissions, building the world’s cleanest diesel engines and developing totally new power systems, which utilize new fuel alternatives.

Customers looking for the most fuel-efficient model in each particular vehicle class need only look for our BlueMotion brand, Audi A3 TDI, VW Jetta TDI, which have been named the 2010 World Green Car, the 2010 Green Car of the Year and 2009 Green Car of the Year, respectively.

But our commitment doesn’t stop at the cars we build. We work hard to be sustainable and eco-friendly in all of our operations — from our LEED®-certified headquarters in Virginia and LEED-aggressive Chattanooga plant, through all aspects of how we do business in the United States.

Environmental stewardship has always been an integral part of our business, not an obligatory side issue. And it shows. In fact, Volkswagen Group of America is recognized as “the most environmentally friendly car company selling in the USA” by J.D. Power and Associates.
