Learn how Volvo Group will lead the transition to
fossil-free transportation.

Decarbonizing the transportation industry

Around the globe, businesses are taking significant steps towards decarbonization with Volvo Group products and services.
The shift to electric propulsion systems (both battery and hydrogen fuel cell-based) is not limited to heavy- and medium-duty trucks - it also covers construction and mining equipment, buses, marine and industrial power applications.

Flexible and total business solutions

At Volvo Group we are committed to offering the flexible services and solutions our customers need to build their business in the smartest way possible. The shift to electric equipment drives system thinking, where the truck or machine is only one part of a total solution encompassing charging infrastructure, battery optimization, maintenance, financing and value-adding services.


    We put people at the center of everything we do. Volvo Group is committed to safety and has a Zero Accident Vision for people using our products and those who work in our operations.We work pro-actively to develop intelligent solutions that not only mitigate the consequences of accidents, but strive to avoid them altogether. And, of course, safety is a prerequisite for vehicle uptime and increased productivity.

    Safety in the heart of Volvo

    Traffic safety has been at the heart of what we do since Volvo was founded over 90 years ago, and it remains so. Safety plays is a vital role in driving continued prosperity. As a global supplier of transport and infrastructure solutions we have a unique opportunity to contribute to both a safer traffic environment for people all over the world, and a safer work environment for the drivers and operators who use our products. Our safety measures make a difference when it matters.

    Global road safety scenarios 

    When discussing road safety and traffic safety measures from a global perspective it is important to have relevant facts. Volvo Group and SAFER Research Centre at Chalmers have put together a study to establish a foundation for the development of future scenarios that can help implement and identify true road safety improvements.

    Climate change is the challenge of our generation and we are enabling our customers to be leaders in the shift towards a decarbonized transport system. The transition is happening now. We offer fully electric solutions ranging from compact excavators to city buses and heavy-duty trucks with zero greenhouse gas tailpipe emissions. Our total solutions provide our customers a fast-track to emission reduction, while managing total investment and cost of operation parameters. For us as a company, the shift to electric solutions is a unique growth opportunity.

    Learn about our three-pronged approach

    At Volvo Group we believe that the road to net-zero means utilizing the latest propulsion technology. We are already offering battery-electric solutions and we are investing heavily in the field of hydrogen – both for fuel cell applications and as a renewable fuel for combustion engines. We believe that the future will demand varied propulsion applications to meet our customers’ needs and environmental demands. This is why we are taking a three-pronged approach to propulsion.


    Committed to sustainable progress

    Just as the Volvo Group has set ambitious Science Based Targets (SBT) on greenhouse gas emission reductions in line with the Paris Agreement, many of our customers, and their customers in turn, have also committed to sustainability goals. This is encouraging them to gradually phase-out vehicles and machines running on fossil fuels and replace them with electric vehicles. Because of this, we prioritize developing solutions that reduce carbon emissions, with electromobility as a baseline.

    Together, battery electric, fuel cell electric and the combustion engine running on renewable fuels have the potential to decarbonize the transport industry.

    More productive

    Today, truck fill rates are on average only 40–50% of total load capacity. We would like to change that. To improve productivity and the use of available resources, we are working with AI and Machine Learning technologies to optimize transportation through load consolidation, sharing, and improving fleet efficiency by using emission class restrictions, slow transport and alternatively fueled products.

    Maximizing uptime and productivity

    Volvo Group provides total solutions, where we complement our product offering of trucks, buses, construction equipment, and marine and industrial power systems with a broad range of services that maximize uptime and productivity. This includes service contracts, monitoring of vehicles in real time to predict unplanned stops before they occur, financing and insurance solutions, fleet management and much more.

    How we make it happen

    CAST: Volvo Group’s modular system

    The Volvo Group and its partners benefit from the Group’s modular platform Common Architecture & Shared Technology (CAST).

    The ambition with CAST is to develop a competitive set of modular products and services that are easy to integrate, meet future legal, market and society needs, as well as exceeding customer expectations.

    Mixed model assembly

    The Volvo Group’s modular vehicle architecture creates advantages in both the development and manufacturing phase. The architecture allows us to put either an internal combustion engine or an electric driveline in the same chassis. In this way, we reduce development time, costs, and can bring new offers to the market faster.

    Energy solutions

    Volvo Energy is accelerating the transition to electrification and sustainability by taking a circular approach to batteries, using digitalization and partnerships to get the most out of second-life battery solutions.
