The Volvo Group has a significant impact on the societies in which we operate. The companies in the Group are major employers and also generate employment opportunities for many suppliers. The Volvo Group endeavors to conduct responsible enterprise based on the Group’s Code of Conduct, its core values and other established guidelines. In terms of the environment, responsibility for social and business ethics is integrated in the operations and the Group aims to apply these policies with its business partners. This is a part of the risk management process and a way for the Group to reduce the impact on the environment, while contributing to a positive social development.
