Transparency

We want to be fully transparent about sustainability, so you get the information you need to make informed, ethical choices.

The power of transparency

By being completely transparent about our methods and progress towards a climate-neutral future, we aim to set a standard that others who want to make similar claims must follow.

Making real progress
From climate-neutrality to supply chain traceability and sustainability labelling, transparency is a key enabler to making real world progress.

Climate-neutrality
Carbon footprint reporting

The Polestar 2 Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) reveals the car’s lifetime carbon footprint, covering emissions from materials production, manufacturing and logistics, use phase, and end of life. The report also includes the methodology we used.

Polestar 2 Life Cycle Assessments

We’re fully transparent about all greenhouse gas emissions from cradle to grave, so you can make an informed choice.

In 2020 we published the lifetime carbon footprint of the launch edition of Polestar 2, along with the entire methodology we used.

Supply chain traceability
Ethically sourcing raw materials

We’re working to change how minerals are extracted and processed. We want them to be mined responsibly, with respect for human rights, local communities, and ecosystems. We currently trace cobalt using blockchain. More risk materials will follow.

Bringing blockchain to the supply chain

Using blockchain software supplied by our partners, Circulor, we can accurately track cobalt throughout our entire supply chain. This means its source, and the methods by which it’s extracted, processed and transported, can be regulated.

Sustainability labelling
Product sustainability declarations

You can find product sustainability declarations on our website and in Polestar spaces. They currently disclose our cars’ cradle-to-gate carbon footprint and traced risk materials. The next step is to develop these declarations by including more sustainability metrics like recycled content.

How we define sustainability

We take a holistic approach to sustainability, according to the scope set out by the 17 Sustainable Development Goals from the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. We continuously reassess and take action on all of our material issues, to ensure that we strive towards a positive impact.
