As a cornerstone in the world of luxury vehicles, Audi embraces its responsibility to help expand a more environmentally compatible automotive landscape. Being a founding partner of Greentech Festival is one of the many ways Audi demonstrates its commitment to sustainability. Greentech Festival is a conference that aims to further discussion on topics related to environmental protection, climate, and sustainable development.

The Festival made its first appearance in New York last week when it visited The Shed, a cultural center in Hudson Yards. The Q4 e-tron was on display at Audi's exhibition space. The 301-horsepower all-electric compact crossover offers an EPA-estimated 241 miles of range and fast charging capability that can replenish the battery by 80% in half an hour. The Q4-e-tron's Solar Sky Blue paint is of particular interest. Designed specifically for the Q4, the paint helps reduce heat build-up by reflecting a portion of the sun's rays, resulting in a more comfortable cabin and lowering the air conditioning system's energy needs.

Audi's exhibition also highlighted several sustainability initiatives, including:

  • The Audi Environmental Foundation recently awarded grants to two environmentally-focused organizations: Save The Bay and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.

  • Audi of America and Redwood Materials have partnered to create a closed-loop EV battery recycling chain.

  • Audi is exploring new opportunities for using recycled auto glass in the fabrication of new windshields. The circularity effort has the potential to reduce CO2 by up to 30% and water use by up to 90% in the production of glass for windshields.

  • Audi's Mission:Zero highlights the automaker's efforts to reach carbon neutrality of its production sites by 2025.
