Officially announced in 2021, the Polestar 0 project aims to create a climate neutral electric car by 2030 by eliminating emissions in the supply chain. Bulten will be delivering climate neutral fasteners to the project, through a combination of energy efficient materials and processes.
Sustainability is integrated in Bulten’s strategy, with an aim to become the most sustainable company in the fastener sector. Bulten has clearly defined climate goals both for its own production and its supply chain, which are also in-line with the Paris Agreement.
“We are truly honoured to be part of the Polestar 0 project and to assist one of our customers in developing a truly climate neutral vehicle. We take our sustainability work seriously and see this as an opportunity to share our knowledge, but also to learn from the other partners involved in the project,” says Anders Nyström, president and CEO at Bulten Group.
Hans Pehrson, leader of the Polestar 0 project, concludes: “I’m looking forward to Bulten becoming a crucial part of our team as we find solutions for developing an entirely climate neutral supply chain. Bulten’s expertise in fasteners will be invaluable in our mission and will play an integral role in pioneering new and innovative technologies to achieve what has so far been impossible.”
