    Pioneering positive change for people and the planet

    Passionately protecting the climate and pioneering change is in our business DNA. Our beginnings as recyclers in 1998, reveal we’ve been environmentally-focused from day one. As an environmental leader, we’re the largest recycler of vehicles today. Our North American operations recycle more than 90% of materials from vehicles we procure and our European segment is engaged in sustainability projects that improve our communities. By reducing CO₂ emissions, we also contribute to meeting environmental Paris Agreement targets.


    Driving the independent automotive aftermarket forward

    Innovation is at the core of our business DNA. At LKQ Europe we are convinced that investments in new business models, products and services are essential to keep delivering added value to our customers.
