The project looks to eliminate all greenhouse gas emissions stemming from the production and end-of-life of the car. Nokia-based Nokian is developing climate-neutral premium tires to be used on the vehicle.
The Polestar 0 project aims to to eliminate all sources of CO2 emissions without offsetting them, throughout the car's supply chain, manufacturing processes and end of life.
In order to attain that, Nokian said that collaboration must be achieved across the entire development process and value chain, from suppliers to retailers. Each component, and its value chains, must be climate neutral.
"This type of partnership is a perfect match when it comes to Nokian Tyres' values, business and our ambitious work on sustainability," Teemu Soini, head of innovation and development at Nokian Tyres, said.
Soini said the project will help decrease "the carbon footprints of different business activities," some of which may be available before 2030.
