BERLIN (Reuters) – Mercedes-Benz aims to halve its CO2 emissions by 2030, the carmaker said on Monday, providing a half-way goal to its existing target of becoming CO2 neutral by 2039.

The company will also work towards covering 70% of the energy it needs for production with renewable energy by 2030, it said, without specifying what proportion of the energy it uses for production at present comes from renewable sources.
