Responsibility at the heart of everything we do.

At Volvo Cars we’re still building on our legendary heritage. We started making cars in 1927 because we believed nobody else was making them strong enough or safe enough for Swedish roads. We have been leaders in innovation ever since. It is this commitment that continues driving us forward to the next great Volvo Cars idea.

Your safety and care for the world

An important element of our approach to Sustainability is protecting you and your world. We take our responsibility towards keeping you safe, and limiting our impact on the environment, very seriously. Sustainability is central to all our decisions and investments, and it is key to successful and ethical business.


Making a difference in the world

We have always been about safety, but we also understand the environmental impact that cars have – that’s why we developed our more efficient, less polluting Drive-E powertrains. 

We care about your personal environment, too; the air inside a Volvo is cleaner than that outside thanks to our climate control system. And we realise that cars need to be better integrated into your life.
