Global challenges like climate change and depletion of natural resources are so vast and complex that they require cooperation from everyone. This means that the public and private sectors, individuals and businesses alike will have to work together if we’re ever going to affect significant, lasting change. We at Volvo Construction Equipment believe there’s an important role we can play in addressing a range of economic, social and environmental issues through our dedication to corporate social responsibility (CSR) values.
CSR is a wide-ranging, ever-changing, utterly global topic. But to Volvo, CSR is all about minimizing environmental impact from our operations, working to develop energy- and fuel-efficient products, and being responsible partners in the communities in which we work. It’s about creating long-term shared value for society, not simply focusing on our own bottom line. And it’s our commitment to a stringent code of conduct, the way we aim to always do business in an appropriate, responsible, transparent way. For us CSR isn’t merely a sideline activity; it’s fully integrated into everything we do, from the way we design our machines to the way we treat our employees. That’s because CSR comes naturally to us: it’s in line with Volvo Group’s cultural heritage and our core values of quality, safety and environmental care — as well as our well-established role as a trustworthy business partner.
