Social responsibility

Contributing to a sustainable society

As a global provider of commercial transport solutions we strive to promote traffic safety and minimize injuries in the event of accidents. We also focus initiatives on being an attractive and responsible employer and building relations with the local society.

Engaged and motivated employees, who are willing to take part in Volvo Group's development, are crucial to our future success. Investing in our employees is critical to remain competitive and sustainable, and it ultimately leads to increased customer satisfaction. We consider diversity a catalyst for innovation.

Respect for the individual represents an important component of the Volvo Group's culture. We therefore support and protect human rights within our sphere of influence.
