And we'll make your electric vehicle tyre purchase carbon-neutral 

We stand for safe, energy efficient and long lasting tyres

When it comes to rolling resistance, we are pushing the limits to reduce CO2 emissions, as well as extend the range of electric vehicles without compromising on grip and therefore safety. We know: The better the rolling resistance, the lower the energy consumption and the higher the range in electric vehicles.

And there’s more: When you buy any new Continental tyres for your EV, we neutralise the CO2 backpack before and after use. It's quick and easy to do, just sign up below and we'll make your purchase carbon-neutral at no extra cost to you.

Our CO2 commitment

We want to turn trends into opportunities. Our technologies not only make mobility more convenient and safer, they also make it more sustainable. For this reason, we have set the goal of achieving 100% carbon neutrality along our entire value chain by 2050. What's more our energy efficiency of tyre production is already well above the current industry standard.

We continually invest in research and development to drive innovative technologies, alternative and sustainable materials, and environmentally friendly production processes. We support the electric vehicle revolution by ensuring that our broad range of tyres meet electric vehicle requirements, such as tyres with low rolling resistance. In this way, energy consumption in electric vehicles goes down, while the range goes up. And we want to achieve even more together with our customers.

With Net|Zero|Now, our immediate action program to mitigate climate change, we focus on our products for emission-free vehicles. We work with globally recognised partners, who specialise in high-quality certified projects in ecosystem and forestation.

So if you drive an electric vehicle and need new tyres, you can do even more for the environment. When you purchase new Continental tyres, don't forget to sign up above and we'll make your purchase carbon-neutral, at no extra cost to you.

Our goals

  • When purchasing new Continental tyres for your electric vehicle, we offer to neutralise the CO2 backpack before and after use.
  • We use our engineering expertise to constantly develop more sustainable solutions, such as finding greener alternatives to current raw materials.
  • Our worldwide tyre plants continuously work to optimise energy consumption. As a result of years of intensive work, we consumed 55% less water and 17% less energy than the industry average per metric ton of tyres produced in 2019. By 2030, we plan to reduce our absolute consumption by another 20% for energy (vs. 2018) and for water (vs. 2020).
  • Since 2020, grid electricity purchased for Continental worldwide has been carbon-neutral thanks to the procurement of energy attribute certificates. We are a member of the RE 100 initiative that fosters renewable energy.
  • By 2040, production of all our tyres will be carbon-neutral.
  • By 2050 at the latest, we will be completely climate-neutral along our entire value chain.
