Polestar and Pieter-Jan Lint

Out of a shared commitment to sustainability, Polestar is joining forces with vegan chef Pieter-Jan Lint.

Like electric driving, veganism is a scalable and transparent solution to climate change with values consistent with Polestar's philosophy.

Polestar joins forces with chef Pieter-Jan Lint, a culinary virtuoso and expert in vegan fine dining. As a Polestar ambassador, he reinforces his sustainability mission by driving his Polestar 2, from visits to local farmers to the venues where he teaches and presents his books. 

In addition to efforts in the automotive industry, Polestar is working with partners outside its own field who share the same vision to create a platform for innovative ideas that contribute to a sustainable future. Lies Eeckman, Managing Director of Polestar Belgium, on the collaboration with Pieter-Jan Lint: "Pieter-Jan Lint's cooking reflects his background as an engineer by bringing different ingredients together in a dish, analogous to how a car at Polestar is built from different parts." Both aim for a world where luxury and innovation go hand in hand with respect for the planet and where the pursuit of perfection is never at the expense of future generations. "Like electric driving, veganism is a scalable and transparent solution to climate change with values that align with Polestar's philosophy," emphasizes Lies Eeckman.

While Polestar is taking innovative steps in the automotive industry, Pieter-Jan Lint is exploring new avenues in the gastronomic sector by, among other things, looking critically at the origin and impact of ingredients.

In his restaurant, Amaranth, Pieter-Jan transforms pure, organic raw materials into unique dishes that honour their natural origins. At the heart of his culinary approach are the pillars of craft, passion, and creativity, seamlessly combined with top-quality organic and plant-based ingredients. His mission is clear: to guide guests through the creative and versatile realm of vegan cuisine, offering an experience that contributes to a more conscious and sustainable society.

From a shared mindset and dedication to sustainability, transparency, and innovation, Polestar and Pieter-Jan have a natural connection, showing that sustainability and high-end luxury go hand in hand. “Just like electric driving, vegan gastronomy is a scalable and transparent approach to slow down climate change, aligning with Polestar's philosophy,” notes Lies Eeckman, Managing Director for Polestar Belgium & Luxembourg.

Polestar will continue collaborating with partners outside the automotive industry who share the same vision to create a platform for innovative ideas contributing to a sustainable future. Only through collaboration and mutual inspiration can we succeed in creating a more sustainable future.
