Economic responsibility

Vehicles that create sustainable value

The Volvo Group’s products and services are in many ways enablers of modern society and contribute to sustainable development and growth around the world. As a company, we need to ensure that our business is economically responsible and sound; only then can we continue to create value for customers and thereby value for our shareholders.

Most of our customers operate commercial transport-related businesses. We often develop our products in close cooperation with them, in order to improve their productivity and cut their costs. We also invest significant resources in new technologies, employees’ skills and competence, and more sustainable transport solutions to remain competitive in the market.
