The prosperity of society and our business success are closely connected, so it is only natural that the Volvo Group strives to continuously contribute to the communities where we live and operate in order to move society and our business forward.
The Volvo Group has initiated, contributed to and supported various societal activities for many years. From 2015, the Volvo Group has adopted the principle of creating shared value through all our societal commitments and we have grounded our global program for societal engagement: Moving Society Forward. With that program, we want to adopt corporate policy and practices, establish strategic partnerships and engage in societal activities where our contribution helps advance social, economic and environmental conditions in the communities where we operate and sell, while simultaneously enhancing the competitive advantage and profitability of the Volvo Group.
The Volvo Group recognizes that we will achieve maximum positive impact if we apply our specialist knowledge and skills and expert capabilities. That is why in our Moving Society Forward program, we will focus on three areas that are most relevant to our industry and expertise; Traffic and Worksite Safety, Environmental Sustainability, and Education and Skills Development.
We carefully select activities connected to our vision, business goals and core competencies as well as to local societal needs. We join forces with key partners and involve our employees, without whom we would not exist. They bring their unique knowledge and competencies to the table which helps us enhance societal development.
The Moving Society Forward program focuses on the areas where societal needs intersect with our industry, which is where we have the deepest knowledge and expertise: Traffic and worksite safety, Environmental sustainability, Education and skills development. By focusing on these three areas, we can add economic, social, and environmental value, and strengthen our position as a good corporate citizen.
