Responsibility at the heart of everything we do.
We started making cars in 1927 because we believed nobody else was making them strong enough or safe enough for Swedish roads. Along the way we’ve come up with dozens of innovations, some of which have changed the world. And it’s this commitment that drives us forward to the next great Volvo Cars idea.
At Volvo we aim to find people who will bring new thinking and problem solving to the big challenges we face on a daily basis, and we pride ourselves on our passionate workforce.
An important element of our approach to Sustainability is protecting you and your world. We take our responsibility towards keeping you safe, and limiting our impact on the environment, very seriously. Sustainability is central to all our decisions and investments, and it is key to successful and ethical business.
We have always been about safety, but we also understand the environmental impact that cars have – that’s why we developed our cleaner, more efficient Drive-E powertrains.
We care about your personal environment, too. With our climate control systems, the air inside a Volvo is often much cleaner than the air outside.
Our comprehensive Code of Conduct, which is based on existing policies, is our way of ensuring that we conduct business in an ethical and compliant way. The Code applies to everyone within Volvo Cars, as well as consultants and agency personnel working under the direction of Volvo Cars. We also expect that all of our business contacts and commercial partners should be governed by the same or similar principles stipulated in the Code of Conduct. It is also an important part of our commitment to Sustainability.
We have been reporting on environmental, health and safety aspects of our products and production since 2000, before such reporting became formalized.
In 2003, we published our first Sustainability Report in line with the international reporting guidelines from the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).
