Integration of environmental issues from design to vehicle recycling

At each stage of the vehicle life cycle, Citroën teams are mobilized to limit as much as possible the impact of the automobile on the environment: control of consumption, CO2 and pollutant emissions, reasoned use of natural resources, better recyclability, ... Citroën's commitment concerns:

  • Taking environmental issues into account when designing products and services;
  • The implementation of the principles of the circular economy, notably the reuse and recycling of materials.


Eco-design aims to ensure progress in sustainable mobility, beyond vehicle compliance with environmental regulations. For Citroën, it translates into a significant part of research and innovation allocated to clean technologies and green materials.


To produce carbon-free vehicles, Citroën has an industrial tool capable of controlling its own impacts and capable of responding to major environmental challenges.


In order to encourage its points of sale and repair workshops to take initiatives for better management of their waste, Citroën is taking steps to sort and recycle waste.


Citroën strives to increase the efficiency of its recycling process by designing products that are sustainable from the start. The objective is also to reduce the quantity of waste produced during the manufacture of a vehicle, during its use and until its recycling.
