Everyone is talking about sustainability. We too, and especially in this issue, because: With an Earth Week around Earth Day on April 22, Axel Springer wants to focus even more on the topic, and AUTO BILD is of course taking part.
Did you know that “Earth Day” has been celebrated since the 1970s? But the topic of sustainability is much older: Hans Carl von Carlowitz used the term for the first time in 1713 – in an essay on forestry. His demand: cut only as much wood as can grow back. That’s exactly what it’s all about: Sustainable means using resources in such a way that no damage occurs.
In relation to driving, this can mean leaving the car at home sometimes. Or switch to an electric car: Electricity from wind or solar power can be consumed in almost any amount without harming nature. But there is another way: How the internal combustion engine is becoming “greener”, what the tire industry is doing to protect the environment, and many other exciting stories on the subject of sustainability can be found in this issue of AUTO BILD – just look for the green Earth -Week logo lookout.
