Quality and Ecology

Ecology in the first place


Our planet is our home. Climate change, resource depletion and other environmental issues concern all of us and at Hyundai are well aware of this. Hyundai Motor Company has long been a leader in the production of cars with alternative fuel drives. These futuristic fuels should be environmentally friendly.

“Hyundai Motor Company values ​​human values ​​and fulfils its corporate and social responsibility through environmental protection in the name of harmony between man, the environment and society.”


Global environmental policy

We recognize the environment as a key element of business and create corporate values ​​by proactively promoting environmental management. We support the development and distribution of environmentally friendly products.

We are committed to reducing pollutants and protecting resources and energy for their sustainable use at all stages of our product lifecycle, from development through production, sales and use to disposal. We provide all of our employees with environmental training courses, support our suppliers in environmental management and contribute to the public good.

We comply with all international and national environmental laws, regulations and treaties. We continue to improve environmental management and present our activities to the public.

Environmental approach in HMMC

During the construction of the car factory, great emphasis was placed on environmental friendliness from the very beginning. More than a thousand trees in the area were not cut down but transplanted in a demanding manner.

At the plant, we have built a sophisticated logistics system based on the strategic location of the three main subcontractors directly in the industrial zone, two of which (Mobis and Transys) are connected to the Hyundai assembly shop using covered bridges. The volume of parts that are delivered to the assembly shop in a clean and silent manner is a daily load of 200 environmentally friendly trucks.

After the start of production, we introduced the ISO 14001 environmental management system, which we want to confirm and emphasize the importance of environmental responsibility in our company.

We use state-of-the-art technology and state-of-the-art laboratories to ensure environmental protection. We have implemented a waste management system throughout the production, but we also ensure their correct sorting.


Our paint shop uses water-based paints and all industrial waste water from the entire plant is cleaned in our own wastewater treatment plant using the latest procedures.

The shops are equipped with special air conditioning, which ensures direct removal of vapours and exhalations from the production process.

In December 2012, a device for the reduction of volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions by regenerative thermal oxidation (RTO) was put into operation next to the paint shop. The device sucks air contaminated by VOCs from the topcoat spray line and drying ovens and blows it into the combustion chamber, where the air is heated at elevated pressure and temperature of nearly 1000 degrees Celsius while the VOCs are burned; then the air is cooled and released freely into the atmosphere. The efficiency of this device is more than 97%.

The installation of paint spraying robots at the paint shop reduced paint consumption by 17% and organic solvents by 11.5%, and overall this reduced VOC emissions by 11%.


By installing new regulated energy-saving lighting in the Transmission Shop, we reduced the electricity consumption for lighting by 52%.

In the HMMC area, a park has been built for employees to take a break and have some rest with 37 trees and 600 m2 of grass area.

At the Paint Shop, solvents are recycled from service (75% of the solvents are returned to the process).

95% of the materials used in car manufacturing are recyclable. 88% of HMMC waste is recycled. We use low VOC materials. As the only car manufacturer in the Czech Republic, we hold the EMAS certificate.

Hyundai is the way of quality

Quality is one of Hyundai’s key points. Our goal is to supply customers with quality cars that become their every day partners.

We have been awarded the National Quality Award

Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Czech is a proud winner of the National Quality Award in the Excellence category. Our joy over this success is even greater because we were the first company in the Czech Republic to win the award for the third time. Since the award has been valid for three years, we have been proud of this title since 2011. We defended it in 2014 and 2017 and also in 2020. We value the highest prizes of Excellence as it is a confirmation of our quality and enduring work.

Declarations and certificates

In order to publicly declare that HMMC achieves the required quality of its products and processes, it was decided to build a quality management system, an integral part of which is also intensive care for the safety and health of employees. The quality of our production is also evidenced by the obtained certificates and awards.
