Often, the focus around vehicle emissions centers on emissions during the vehicle usage; an overlooked hotspot is in the vehicle production itself. This phase alone accounts for approximately 15-20% of the automotive sector's carbon emissions.
With a shift to non-fossil-fuel-powered vehicles, McKinsey predicts that emissions from material production will soon surpass tailpipe emissions, making up for 60% of life-cycle emissions by 2040. Adapting to this shift will require automotive companies to consider their entire value chain and in particular, their supply chain. If automotive companies start acting now to address the future rise of material emissions, the challenge can become an opportunity for companies to cut costs through carbon abatement.
