For a initial time, ŠKODA took partial in a worldwide ‘Earth Hour’. Within a horizon of a tellurian village action, instituted by a WWF, a pointer in many countries and thousands of cities is: Lights off for an hour! This year, a ‘Earth Hour’ took place on Mar 23 between 8:30 and 9:30 p.m. (CET).

The movement ‘Earth Hour’ was instituted by a World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF in short), one of a largest general organizations for a insurance of nature, in 2007. More than 6,000 cities in 150 countries participated in a final ‘Earth Hour’ during a finish of Mar 2012.

The GreenLine chronicle of a new ŠKODA Octavia era will be a thriftiest Octavia ever – with a expenditure of only 3.3 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers and limit CO2 emissions of 87 grams per kilometer.

Besides a growth and make of fuel-efficient vehicles, ŠKODA focuses on a fit doing of resources within a horizon of a ‘GreenFuture’ strategy. By 2018, a use of appetite and water, prolongation of emissions are to be reduced by 25 percent and an even aloft grade of recycling in ŠKODA’s vehicle prolongation will be reached. With this goal, a Czech vehicle manufacturer contributes to a goals of a environmental plan of a Volkswagen Group until 2018.
