Volvo Sustainability Actions


Science Based Targets

The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi)* has approved our ambitious plan to become a climate-neutral company by 2040. According to SBTi, our emissions reduction targets are in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement to limit global warming to well below 2°C compared to pre-industrial levels.


Circular economy

The world’s natural resources are limited. This requires a mindset that embraces the circular economy, where the parts and materials used are not only recovered at the end of the car’s useful lifespan but also re-used in the production of new vehicles. That is why we design our cars to minimise waste and make greater use of recycled and bio-based materials.


Ethical and responsible business

By protecting the wellbeing and rights of our employees, promoting equality and working to minimise environmental and social impacts within our supply chain - we aim to be a recognised leader in ethical and responsible business.

Volvo Sustainability Commitments


Electrifying our fleet

Tailpipe emissions account for a significant part of our carbon footprint. That is why every new Volvo car launched from 2019 onwards has an electric motor. Our aim is that 50 per cent of our annual car sales should be all-electric by 2025, with the remainder consisting of hybrids.


Reducing emissions

Reducing emissions in our supply chain is critical to reaching our climate target. We are encouraging our top suppliers to use 100 per cent renewable energy by 2025 and to develop a more circular approach to materials.


Climate-neutral manufacturing

We aim to have climate-neutral manufacturing operations by 2025. Already today our global plants are powered by over 80 per cent climate-neutral electricity. Since 2008, all our European plants have been running on hydro-electric power.
