As a car manufacturer and retailer we have a huge responsibility to ensure we reduce our environmental impact to the greatest extent, but this also gives us the opportunity to change car design, build and ownership for the better. Whether it’s how we build or design our cars, or how we try to educate the next generations on the environment, we’re proud to have environmental responsibility as one of our core values.
Some of our main aims include eliminating single use plastics from our offices, canteens and events by the end of 2019 and making our entire manufacturing operation climate neutral by 2025.
Volvo Cars also has an ambition that at least 25% of all plastics in cars launched after 2025 will be made from recycled material. This is the most progressive statement around the use of recycled plastic by any premium automotive manufacturer.
