Each new product from the Volvo Group shall have less environmental impact than the product it replaces. The Group uses Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) to map a product’s environmental impact in order to make well-informed decisions in the development process.

Findings from analyses indicate over 90% of the environmental impact results from the use of the products. The Group's main focus is therefore on reducing the environmental impact of products in use.

The graph above shows the environmental impact of the new Renault Trucks T 4x2 Euro 6 tractor.
