Cities worldwide are facing the same challenge: how to grow in a sustainable way. Public transport plays a key role here, and our vision is to become the world leader in sustainable transport solutions.

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.
