Sustainability perspective
Environmental work is governed by a common environmental policy. Another important tool is Volvo Production System, with methods for streamlining the operation and minimizing productivity losses and also tools for documenting work-related risks, indicators for measuring health and safety and methods for ergonomic workplaces. At the end of 2012, 97% of employees in production worked in units that are certified according to environmental and quality management systems, primarily ISO 14001 and ISO 9001.
