The Code of Conduct, which is based on existing policies, is our way of ensuring that we conduct business in an ethical and compliant way. And this Code applies to everyone within Volvo, as well as consultants and agency personnel working under the direction of Volvo Cars.
Volvo Cars shall comply with all relevant laws, regulations and standards in all of the countries in which we operate. All employees are required to be aware of, and conduct their activities in accordance with this Code and all supporting policies, directives and guidelines. This holds true even when the Code stipulates a higher standard than that required by national laws and local regulations.
The Code of Conduct rests on internationally accepted conventions on human rights and labour rights as well as international guidelines for multinational companies. Volvo Cars supports the United Nations Global Compact initiative, which is a global strategic business initiative on corporate responsibility.
