VW Launches an Energy-Efficient Facility in Chattanooga
On May 24, 2011, Volkswagen announced the grand opening of Volkswagen’s LEED-aggressive manufacturing facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
The plant is a perfect real-world example of how Volkswagen is incorporating the Think Blue initiative, a holistic approach to environmental sustainability, into everything we do. Think Blue’s goal is to unify all of Volkswagen’s environmental activities and motivate employees and customers to practice environmental responsibility in their everyday lives. The Chattanooga plant will not only build and bring fuel-efficient vehicles to market; it will also reduce waste and emissions throughout the production process.
