Twelve new partners join Polestar’s quest to produce a climate-neutral car by 2030

Polestar, the Swedish electric performance car company, is accelerating its work to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions by welcoming twelve new partners to the Polestar 0 project, who are committed to collaborate on the company’s moon-shot goal to produce a truly climate-neutral car by 2030 without offsetting.

The new and existing partners are industry leaders, now actively working on the Polestar 0 project. Each partner will focus on certain materials, components and processes involved in the production of cars. New partners, listed below, cover areas such as plastics, composites, chemicals and metals.

The transport sector is the fastest-growing greenhouse gas (GHG) emitting sector, expected to reach a share of more than 30% of total GHG emissions in the future*.

Polestar and its partners share a common goal: to decarbonize the complete supply chain and manufacturing process.

Thomas Ingenlath, CEO of Polestar, comments: “The real potential of electric cars will be fulfilled when we as an industry can say goodbye not just to tailpipe emissions, but production-related emissions as well. We made a bold commitment 18 months ago when we launched the Polestar 0 project, and these strong partnerships show the steady progress towards our goal.”

Hans Pehrson, leader of the Polestar 0 project and former Head of R&D at Polestar, says: “Our new partners will help develop solutions that don’t currently exist and they embrace the challenge of finding new technologies. The next five years will be critical, and we need partners that will engage with the Polestar 0 project to ensure its success. We will also see spin-off effects across various industries when we address the challenges in the automotive sector with innovation and the development of climate-neutral supply chains throughout a wide array of base industries.”

From September 14, 2022, Polestar opens a second call for collaboration, targeting transformative solutions for new technologies to create man-made materials without any GHG emissions in the field of minerals and metals, bio-based chemicals and plastics, and other base materials. Interested parties are encouraged to apply online.

New partners and their focus areas in the Polestar 0 project:

  • Pensana: Independent and sustainable supply of rare earth materials
  • Boliden: Copper and other metals
  • Papershell: Advanced fiber composite based on paper
  • Sekab: Bio-based chemicals
