Environmental care is one of our corporate core values. Ever since the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment was held in Stockholm, Sweden, in 1972, we have had an environmental position on mobility and the environment and have continuously conducted management and employee training on environmental responsibility. Today, environmental issues are an integral part of the Volvo Group’s vision, business strategy and daily work.
We have many strategies in place to manage and mitigate the environmental impacts of our production. This includes greenhouse gas emissions, air and noise pollution, energy and water usage, chemicals and harmful substances, and waste.
