Cost of Cutting CO2 Emissions Plagues Automakers

MercedesDaimler says it will offset expensive emissions-reducing technology with material cost savings, Reuters reports.

“Already in 2014, we could offset the burdens in variable cost for all these CO2-related measures with material cost efficiencies,” chief financial officer Bodo Uebber said. “I think it will be the same in ’15 and ’16 and ’17.”

The high cost of fuel-efficiency technology continues to challenge automakers, especially as falling gasoline priced encourage consumers to buy less fuel-efficient cars.

Daimler ranks no. 10 among companies with the best corporate social responsibility reputation, according to Reputation Institute’s most recent annual CSR RepTrak.

One thought on “Cost of Cutting CO2 Emissions Plagues Automakers

  1. If a small automaker such as Daimler says that they can use material cost savings to pay for emissions reducing technology, you have to wonder about other automakers – who are much larger and therefore can get better deals on materials – claims that they cannot afford such technology because it’s too expensive. Oh really? Then how come it wasn’t so expensive for a small site operator like Daimler to use?
