"This project is part of a series of programmes started by Lamborghini on the subject of environmental sustainability," declared Stephan Winkelmann. "At the beginning of 2010 we inaugurated a large photovoltaic plant which allowed us to reduce the factory's CO2 emissions by 30%. We will continue on this path. In fact, we are moving forward with actions that will take the factory to being neutral in terms of CO2 emissions by 2015. This commitment to the area naturally goes hand in hand with the development of the product, for which we confirm the objective of reducing emissions by 35% by the end of 2015."
