Responsible for more than 30 per cent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions, the construction industry plays a vital role in the future sustainability of our planet. And as our cities grow, the problem is not going away.
The Construction Climate Challenge (CCC) is an initiative hosted by Volvo Construction Equipment to promote sustainability throughout the entire construction industry and provide much needed funding for environmental research.
We aim to create a dialogue between industry representatives, academics and politicians, as well as providing funding for new research and sharing existing knowledge and resources to help the industry make a difference for generations to come. The CCC is part of our commitment to WWF’s Climate Savers Program.
It doesn’t matter who takes the lead, as long as the lead is taken.Former Member of the Executive Board and Former President of Volvo Construction Equipment
Research is at the heart of the CCC. Through supporting and initiating research projects in areas with relevance to our industry, the initiative acts as a bridge between the construction industry and sustainability research. We promote collaborations between researchers, companies and organizations. We also publish research papers and offer in-depth documentation of the projects.Research activities 2016
