Environmental Care

You could say we’re pioneers. Environmental care has been one of our core values since the 70s. 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.
