Driving prosperity through transport solutions requires us to create value for the Volvo Group, our stakeholders and society at large. The Volvo Group's approach to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and sustainability are important parts for succeeding. The CSR and Sustainability approach is divided into three parts: our value chain activities, sustainable transport solutions and our role in society. By focusing on these three areas we build resilience and mitigate risk through embedding CSR and sustainability into daily work.
As a signatory of the United Nations (UN) Global Compact, partner in the WWF Climate Savers program, and supporter of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, we consider global trends and challenges, international norms of responsible business behavior and stakeholder expectations when developing our work.
On 1 January 2016, the 17 SDGs of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development officially came into force. Our ambition is to contribute to all SDGs in our activities, but to focus on those most relevant for our business where we can contribute the most. For the Volvo Group, this means focusing on: UN SDG 3 - Good health and wellbeing UN SDG 9 - Industry, innovation and infrastructure UN SDG 11 - Sustainable cities and communities UN SDG 13 - Climate action
