When in Rovaniemi

Do as the locals do. Words of wisdom that any seasoned traveler is familiar with. They don't just govern behavior, however. They speak to the importance of having an open mind, embracing new customs, and adapting to one's surroundings. There are equivalents in all languages. In English, one is told that “when in Rome, do as the Romans do.” It counts for the Italian capital, just as it counts for northern Finland. Which is exactly where we headed this winter.

Through groundbreaking innovations, milestones, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, 2022 has been quite the journey. Some moments have been big, and others have been huge. You get 525,600 minutes to spend each year. This is how we spent ours.

Polestar x Cyclic Materials: an attractive partnership

A partnership between two organizations can be likened to the attraction between two magnets. Just as opposite poles attract, organizations with different skills are drawn together to achieve common objectives. That’s why we’ve signed a memorandum of understanding with North American start-up, Cyclic Materials, which specializes in the recycling of magnets.

Polestar sustainable materials

First things first: sustainable materials

When facing problems, we are often told to go to the root of the issue. The issue of recycling and sustainability is no different. Climate change cannot be solved through ad-hoc solutions. It requires a restructuring of our manufacturing processes, from beginning to end. Our cars begin with raw materials. So that is where we must start, on our journey towards true sustainability.

The complex relationship between leather and sustainability

To reach climate neutrality, we have to start from the beginning. Rethink and redo. Explore, develop, and compare. When choosing materials, and how to design with them, sustainability has to be top of mind. It can't be achieved at a later stage of the process. It must be ensured from step one.

Silence, set in stone

Silence can be peaceful. It can be awkward. And it can speak volumes. But sometimes, silence is just a void. An absence of engagement, commitment, or promise. In the context of car brand's climate goals, it's a blank to be filled in.

Polestar 0 project: a directed call for collaboration on the elimination of greenhouse gases

Sturdy constructions are built from the ground up. The same goes for sustainable products. Creating a truly climate-neutral car means we first need a sustainable foundation. But laying a solid and sustainable base is no solo mission. It requires teamwork. Which is why we're looking for further collaboration in the Polestar 0 project.
