Our Site Environmental Team
– Mark Pannell
Our steps to manage waste:
We recycle our damaged wood pallets, cardboard, metal, and used oil.
Volvo Group’s definition is a site where less than 1% of its waste goes to a landfill for final disposal (does not apply to construction & demolition debris).
We send all of our general site trash to Enstorga, who then turns our waste into Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF).
SRF is a high-quality, renewable and EPA-recognized alternative to fossil fuel.
Volvo Group is one of only 9 companies recognized at the highest level for Superior Energy Performance (SEP) by the U.S. Department of Energy.
We are certified SEP Platinum and have received this remarkable achievement 3 times since 2014.
In the last decade, we have achieved a total of 57.8% reduction in our energy intensity. This means that it take us 57.8% less energy to produce every engine, transmission, and axle than it did in 2010.
