Social Responsibility

Social Responsibility

The Volvo Group contributes to prosperity by delivering sustainable transport solutions. Our products transport goods and people every day across the globe. To provide truly sustainable transport solutions, the social sustainability pillar is of equal importance as environmental and economic sustainability.

Business & Human rights

Business & Human rights

Our products are built by people, used by people, and serve people with goods and services. That is why human rights are important to the Volvo Group. People are at the core of what we do and managing human capital responsibly, including respecting human rights, is important for long-term business success.  The human rights management work is integrated into our overall work on responsible and ethical business behavior and is inspired by the United Nations (UN) Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

Who we are
Labor relations

Labor relations

For us, maintaining good relationships with our employees and their representatives, like unions and works councils, are vital for long-term business success. Activities include supporting the employer and employee relationship. It also involves preventing and resolving problems related to individuals that arise or affect work situations. Our employees are represented in several dialogue platforms to contribute with their views.

Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion

Our long-term target is that the Group’s employee and management pool reflect the diversity of the regions where we do business and have a balance of genders. As our customers and other stakeholders have different backgrounds we need employees with different backgrounds to facilitate understanding. Recognizing each individual’s abilities and understanding how diversity strengthens us are key factors to develop our products and services and meet our goals.
