Sustainability is what drives Tesla, and it’s not just about the company's products--it drives the values, manufacturing, and mission of the business. Sustainability is at the core of everything the company does. Tesla is a company comprised of sustainability ambassadors looking for ways to continue to set concrete sustainability goals and the paths they intend to take to achieve them.

Tesla strives to reduce lifecycle emissions by creating the most efficient EVs available, whilst developing a single use, million-mile battery. Alongside this stands a firm commitment to source renewable energy for manufacturing, with the ultimate goal being 100% renewable energy for all operations.

According to Tesla's Impact Report 2019, the energy produced by Tesla solar deployments far exceeds the energy used in the company's factories.

Now Giga Shanghai has begun using solar energy to help the company move to renewable energy sources. A new video filmed by WU WA shows solar panels installed on parts of the Phase 2 roof.

The overarching purpose of Tesla is to help expedite the move from a mine-and-burn hydrocarbon economy towards a solar electric economy. As always, Tesla remains committed to helping accelerate the transition to sustainable energy, and not just building cars.

“The three elements needed for a sustainable energy future are sustainable energy generation, energy storage, and sustainable transport, electric cars,” said Tesla CEO Elon Musk.


This is why all of the company's factories will ultimately be powered by renewable energy sources. Achievement of this goal is accelerating in great strides and will soon be fully realized. Tesla remains dedicated to creating a complete energy and transportation ecosystem from solar generation to address increasingly dangerous levels of global CO2 emissions.
