With Volvo Environmental Care

Environmental Care is a Volvo core value. But for us there is so much more to it than just clean air. It’s about using resources responsibly, and about strategies for environmentally sound and cost efficient infrastructure. Ultimately allowing us to offer clean, silent and efficient transport solutions that offer entirely new possibilities for modern city development.

In the continuous work of environmental care, Volvo Buses has joined The Global Industry Partnership on Soot-Free Clean Bus Fleets. We believe that this initiative can accelerate bus fleet renewals and thereby also air quality improvements in many cities around the world.

The 20 targeted cities in the partnership includes Abidjan, Accra, Addis Ababa, Bangkok, Bogotá, Buenos Aires, Casablanca, Dar es Salaam, Dhaka, Istanbul, Jakarta, Johannesburg, Lagos, Lima, Manila, Mexico City, Nairobi, Santiago, Sao Paulo, and Sydney.
