Audi recognizes its responsibility as a mainstay of the luxury automotive segment to help lead the way toward a more sustainable future for automobility. One of the ways Audi demonstrates this commitment is by being a founding partner of Greentech Festival—a conference dedicated to advancing discussion of topics like climate, sustainable development, and environmental protection.

The Greentech Tech festival appeared in New York for the first time in September, being held at The Shed, a culture center in Hudson Yards. In addition to showing off the Q4 e-tron electric crossover, Audi's exhibition space highlighted a few of the automaker's own sustainability initiatives, including:

  • The Audi Environmental Foundation, which recently awarded grants to two environmentally-focused organizations. Save The Bay utilizes "novel techniques" and enlists the help of local volunteers to restore tidal marsh habitat in the San Francisco Bay. The Chesapeake Bay Foundation, a non-profit located in Annapolis, Maryland, strives to reverse the damaging effects of pollution in the Chesapeake Bay and its surrounding rivers and streams.

  • Audi of America and Redwood Materials partnership in developing a closed-loop recycling chain for EV batteries in the United States.

  • Audi's investigation into using recycled auto glass to fabricate new windshields, which has the potential to reduce CO2 emissions and water usage by up to 30% and 90%, respectively, in the windshield production process.

  • Audi's Mission:Zero, a program focusing on four action areas to help the company's production sites achieve carbon neutrality by 2025--decarbonization, water usage, resource efficiency, and biodiversity.
