Future Imagined

Sustainability is as important to Volvo cars as safety. We know what we need to do for a better future, but everyone has a role. This installation in Brooklyn New York, is a view of a more sustainable future, from the perspective of a local artist.

Volvo Cars is committed to set the highest standards of sustainability and safety. We are part of the problem, so we want to be part of the solution. In addition to being fully electric by 2030, we are also working towards climate-neutrality, embracing the circular economy and conducting our business operations responsibly, we help protect the planet and contribute to a fairer society.
We asked local artist, Yazmany Arboleda, what he imagines Brooklyn, New York could look like in 2030 if we all leaned into sustainability. 6 locations, 6 murals - all from his imagination. 
Climate change is the ultimate safety test.
Volvo will host an exciting panel discussion focusing on a more sustainable future for Brooklyn, and beyond.  This event will occur at the end of the summer, so please fill out this form to get updates, and an invitation.
