Data collection and verification

This report was not audited by a third party. Although we acknowledge the value of an audit, we have opted to give priority to developing our in-house process in an effort to further improve our work. A lot of data in this report is also presented in our Annual Report 2012. In addition the process for collecting environmental data is audited by a third party and certified in accordance with ISO 14001. Due to the reorganization of the Volvo Group, some data on an aggregated level for the Group is not available.
