FAW-Volkswagen welcomed its 20 millionth vehicle on Monday at the assembly shop in northeast China's Changchun base, a major milestone for the company. 

Since February 17, FAW-Volkswagen's five bases in China, including Changchun, Chengdu, Foshan, Qingdao and Tianjin have resumed production.

On Monday, FAW-Volkswagen also officially launched its Auto Environmental Protection Innovation Project. The project aims to resolve the core scientific and technical questions in auto environmental protection and promotes the development of auto environmental protection technology.

The Sino-German joint venture, based in Changchun, capital of Northeast China's Jilin province, has established an all-around sustainable development scheme, covering energy conservation in production and operation, emissions reduction in production and logistics as well as cooperation with dealers and suppliers in environmental protection.

With efforts made in green and sustainable development, and achievements in promoting electrification, intelligence, connectivity and sharing, FAW-Volkswagen Automotive Co is poised to "drive the future" and ride out the current downward spiral in the Chinese automobile market.

By analyzing energy saving on utilities, reducing the consumption of natural gas in drying furnaces and monitoring the energy consumption in painting workshops, the energy management system helps the automaker effectively reduce energy consumption, according to FAW-VW.

FAW-VW is scheduled to launch a new environmental protection initiative, which covers automobile pollution prevention and control, battery recycling, in-car environmental health technology and the popularization of automobile environmental protection knowledge.

According to the carmaker, the initiative will also pay attention to energy saving and emissions reduction in the new energy vehicle sector, playing its part in promoting the development of China's new energy vehicles and environmental protection technologies.
