With Polestar’s state-of-the-art production facility in Chengdu, China, where the Polestar 1 is produced, Polestar guides the industry towards a more sustainable future. The Polestar Production Centre is the only automobile plant in China to have earned Gold status in the globally recognised Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system, making it one of the most environmentally responsible car factories in the country. LEED , measures environmental performance in building design, construction and use. Designed by celebrated Norwegian architecture firm Snøhetta, the facility embodies the next level of automotive manufacturing, focusing on energy-efficient buildings, efficient land usage, as well as employee wellbeing. As a result of a newly signed supply contract, the factory runs on 100% renewable electricity. Around 65% of the electricity supplied is now hydroelectric, while the remainder comes from solar, wind and other renewable sources. It is one of the latest concrete steps toward Polestar’s goal of becoming climate neutral.
