The Construction Climate Challenge is hosted by Volvo CE to drive sustainability specifically in the construction industry value chain. The aim is 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.
Volvo CE has long been committed to reducing harmful emissions from its products and facilities, but climate change is too big of an issue to be dealt with through the resources of one company alone. As summarized already in 1972 by former Volvo Group President and CEO Pehr G. Gyllenhammar, ‘We are part of the problem – but we are also part of the solution’.

With the aim of putting climate change at the top of the agenda in the construction sector, the first Construction Climate Challenge Summit was held in June 2015.
