Today we’re operating off hundreds of millions of years of accumulated plant- and animal-based carbon. On our current path, we will fully exhaust this stored energy in only a few generations and, in the process, carbonize our atmosphere to such a degree that life as we know it will not be possible. If the planet is to continue to sustain life and enchant future generations, we have to change. Rivian has signed the Climate Pledge to reach a net-zero carbon emissions goal by 2040 — 10 years ahead of the Paris Agreement. Our battery packs are designed to be easily removed from our vehicles and either recycled or used in “second life” applications such as stationary storage. The interiors of our vehicles are made from 100% animal-free materials with mid-life repairability and end-of-life recyclability planned into the design. Dunnage containers at our plant are reusable and made from plastics harvested from the ocean. We build the world's first electric adventure vehicle.
