Environmental care – it’s what we stand for
You could say we’re pioneers. Environmental care has been one of our core values since the 70's. Since then, we’ve reduced emission of air pollutants from new Volvo trucks by 90%, and decreased fuel consumption and climate impact by 40%. We believe in a sustainable future for the transport industry. And our trucks, services and operations will continue to lead the way there.
Trucks and services
Our aim is to create trucks and services that have less impact on the environment. And – from improving fuel efficiency to exploring alternative fuels – we’re really making progress.
Since 1970, fuel consumption has fallen by 40%. But we know we can do better. So we’re committed to improve efficiency.
Our trucks are fuel-efficient. And our smart fuel management systems and driver training help you get the most from them.
We were the first truck manufacturer to comprehensively test Bio-DME fuel and present a diesel engine that runs on methane gas.
Our Euro 6 engine has halved particulate emissions and reduced oxides of nitrogen oxides by nearly 80%.
Materials and recycling
Around a third of the materials in a new Volvo truck come from recycled materials. And up to 90% can be recycled at the end of the truck’s lifespan.
