“Accelerating the World’s Transition to Sustainable Energy”
With over 100k employees and 8.4 million metric tons of CO2e avoided, Tesla continues to be one of the most popular automotive companies creating ground-breaking innovations in an environmentally conscious world.
“The Future is Sustainable.”
As well as this, Tesla continues to create innovations that help sustain the world. For example, solar energy power, battery power, and electric vehicles all contribute to this vision. Solar energy is created for residential and commercial purposes and benefits. Batteries are installed within households, to keep clean energy in storage. As well as this, electric vehicles make zero-emissions that are charged by using clean energy
“We design sustainable systems that are massively scalable resulting in the greatest environmental benefit possible. Our energy generation and storage products work together with our electric vehicles to amplify their impact.”
Tesla aims to leave the fossil-fuel era behind. “In 2021, Tesla customers helped accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy by avoiding 8.4 million metric tons of CO2e emissions.” Tesla has been impacting the transition from the world’s use of unrenewable resources towards more sustainable energy. Products are built, that can replace some of the planet’s biggest pollution sources. In addition to this, Tesla believes that strong ethics are very important.
Within its People and Culture 2021 report, Tesla reported on: “62% Underrepresented Groups…3 Million Applicants worldwide, and as having 100,000 direct jobs”. Let’s have a look at Tesla’s 2021 Impact report, to get a better picture of just how big the company’s sustainable scaling is measuring up.
Tesla believes, that the “future is electric”. Here are some stats, on the lifetime fuel consumption, of both fossil-burning and electric cars. For fossil-burning cars, there are “30,000 liters (~8,000 U.S. Gallons) of fuel burned per car, and 70 tons of CO2e released into the atmosphere. Burned fossil fuel is extremely difficult to decarbonize, as carbon capture is not economically viable today.” For electric cars, “70 MWh of electricity charged per car, and 30 tons of CO2 released, assuming current global grid mix. Production and lifetime use of EVs is possible, to decarbonize using well-established technologies. The battery pack is recycled at the end of life and used to build a brand-new battery pack. Tesla solar panels have generated more electricity than has been consumed by our vehicles and factories between 2012 and 2021.”
