November 29, 2023 – Since 2022, Mercedes-Benz has been purchasing electricity for its own plants that comes exclusively from renewable sources - i.e. 100 percent green electricity worldwide. In Germany, a green electricity supply contract secures the purchase of electricity from renewable energies at all times. To this end, the company expanded its green electricity portfolio in 2021 together with the energy supplier Enovos and the Norwegian energy producer Statkraft.
Mercedes-Benz is already focusing on CO₂-free power supply
In Germany, green electricity procurement is ensured not only for the passenger car production plants, but for all Mercedes-Benz locations. This also includes the German van plants as well as the central and administrative units – more than 100 locations in total. The company is thus making a significant contribution to the expansion of renewable energy in Germany and to the energy transition.
