May 28, 2014: Volvo Cars reduced average fleet emissions by 8.4 per cent from 2012 to 2013, according to figures monitored by European car industry association ACEA. This underlines Volvo Cars’ position at the forefront of the European car industry in bringing down emission levels and further cements its environmental credentials.

Volvo Cars’ strong environmental performance serves as a reminder of the company’s technological leadership and innovation power. Volvo leads the industry when it comes to bringing more environmentally sound technologies to market, as witnessed by products such as the Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid and the fully in-house developed Drive-E powertrain family. These technologies contributed to an average fleet emission level, weighed by sales volume, of only 131 g/km in 2013 (143 g/km in 2012).

These and other facts on Volvo Cars’ environmental performance are included in the latest edition of the company’s annual Sustainability Report, which is now available online (click here to download). Apart from emission levels of Volvo Cars’ vehicle line-up and the company’s sustainability strategy, the report also informs readers about how the company works with issues like energy efficiency within its operations, diversity and inclusion in the workplace, as well as compliance and ethics.
