Environmental Care has always been one of the top priorities for Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE). The first Volvo Environmental policy was established already in 1972 when the former President and CEO Pehr G Gyllenhammar stated “We are part of the problem – but we are also part of the solution”. Since then, the Volvo Group and Volvo CE have a strong commitment to Environmental Care.
Volvo CE has a holistic approach to Environmental Care addressing continuous improvements within the total enterprise, all way from product planning & development, manufacturing & supply, product use, recyclability to end-of-life for the products. Our focus is always on improving the global footprint; mainly on greenhouse gas emissions and use of materials.
