Our brand partners

At Volvo, not only do we have an incredible range of stylish vehicles, we have some of the most ambitious climate targets of any car manufacturer in the world. So it’s little wonder we choose to partner with local brands who share our core values.

Barkers

Like us, Barkers believe humans aren’t made to sit still. The menswear brand’s restless nature comes from a desire to keep moving forward, to constantly progress and evolve. It drives them to find innovative ways of doing business as they endeavour to change their industry for the better. Barkers are committed to minimising their environmental impact through continuous improvement in their supply chain and business operations. And you can be sure they’ll look good while they do it.

Kathryn Wilson

Kathryn Wilson has established herself as one of New Zealand’s premier footwear designers. Kathryn is committed to upholding fair working conditions for suppliers and ensuring her supply chain adheres to moral and ethical standards. One of her most exciting projects for 2021 is the launch of a climate friendly collection, called KIND by Kathryn Wilson, which features shoes made from recycled plastic bottles and recycled leather uppers. Each pair sold from this collection will donate $10 towards Carbon Click NZ to regenerate a Native Forest in Kaikoura, off-setting the carbon emissions of the shoes. We can’t wait to give them a try.  

Yachting New Zealand

Volvo has always had an affinity with the ocean, so choosing to partner with Yachting New Zealand was a natural fit. The organisation is intent on delivering high-quality experiences and equal opportunities for participants of all levels and backgrounds, fostering a lifelong passion for sailing, boating and the environment. In fact, their ‘Kōkōkaha – Powered by the wind’ programme is bringing the magic of sailing to schools and kura around the country throughout 2021.
