Polestar aims to make its cars as sustainable as possible using environmentally friendly materials on the exterior and inside the cabin as well. The automaker hopes this association would help the company to find such materials.

Speaking about the automaker's goal to achieve carbon neutrality, Polestar's head of sustainability Fredrika Klarén said that the biggest obstacle to sustainable innovation is a lack of imagination. "We need to reimagine everything in order to make real change. This starts with collaboration within, and beyond, our industry," she added further.

Klarén also added that textiles and soft interior materials, in particular, remain a huge challenge in the quest to achieve climate neutrality. She further said that collaboration across different businesses and industries is vital in order to tackle the global concern of climate change."The fashion and automotive industries are two heavy emitters of CO2e. Both industries share many complex challenges when it comes to sustainability, related to resource use, human rights, and transparency," she said.

Not only Polestar but several other automakers around the world such as Audi, BMW, Jaguar Land Rover, and Mercedes-Benz too are aiming for carbon neut5rality through their supply chain and products.
