Sustainability report 2016

Our sustainability reporting for 2016 is thoroughly integrated in our Annual Report.

As a human-centric car company, we are a brand for people who care about other people and the world in which we live. This is at the core of our business and of our approach to sustainability. Our commitment is about re-thinking sustainability, and goes beyond our operations and our cars, and into society. It makes us think again every time we take decisions that affect the world and the lives of people.

There is a Swedish word that means “caring” and “consideration”, but also importantly “to think again“. This word is “omtanke” and summarises our way of protecting what’s important to you. Omtanke is the name of our new programme of sustainability commitments.

Protecting what’s important to you

Building on protecting what’s important to you, we have structured Omtanke on three impact areas: our impact as a company, the impacts of our products and our role in society.
