Certification story

Volvo UK is one of the world’s leading automotive manufacturers. It has dedicated its business to help protect the lives of people both inside and outside its cars. Now, the car manufacturer will show the same dedication to help protect the planet. As a mobility provider, Volvo recognises they have a responsibility to act. By reducing emissions across its entire value chain, the company is aiming to become climate-neutral by 2040.

As part of its commitment to become a circular business by 2040, Volvo aims to maximise resource efficiency across vehicles, components and materials. The company is focused on eliminating waste, making greater use of recycled material and remanufacturing and reusing parts.

Through Planet Mark, Volvo has protected an area of endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Its pledge through Cool Earth goes directly towards supporting the Asháninka community in Central Peru.

It has also helped the Eden Project – an educational charity building connections with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future. The company is looking forward to sharing its sustainability achievements with the wider community.
