End of Life Vehicle Reprocessing

Volvo Car UK complies with all its "producer responsibility" obligations in respect of End of Life Vehicle legislation, which was introduced in 2005.  Working with Cartakeback.com Ltd, the UK's leading scrap car recycling service provider, Volvo ensures that owners of Volvo cars have access to a convenient national network of scrap car recycling centres (Authorised Treatment Facilities), when finally scrapping their cars. These scrap car recycling centres depollute and recycle cars to high environmental standards. The service is free of charge to the owner of the scrap car, who is issued with a statutory DVLA Certificate of Destruction, absolving them from any tax liability for the old car.

Core values

At Volvo, everything we do starts with people. So our mission to make people’s lives easier, safer and better is something that comes naturally to us. It’s the Volvo way. Today, we’re still as focused as ever on our three core values: safety, quality and care for the environment. Protecting what’s important. Making people feel special. And taking pride in helping the world become a better place for all.

Our approach to tax

Volvo Cars acts as a responsible global tax citizen. We encourage ethical and transparent business practices and comply with the OECD Transfer Pricing guidelines. We do not employ legal entities solely for purposes of tax planning and we report and disclose our tax positions in accordance with applicable regulations and requirements.

25 per cent recycled plastics in every new car from 2025

Turn the Tide on Plastic

Our ambition is that from 2025, at least 25 per cent of the plastics used in every newly launched Volvo car will be made from recycled material. Environmental care is one of Volvo’s core values and we will continue to find new ways to bring this into our business. This car and our recycled plastics ambition are further examples of that commitment.
