Volvo Trucks has the highest proportion of eco-friendly cars of all Swedish companies

Volvo Trucks has more eco-certified company cars than any other company in Sweden. No less than 12 percent of Volvo Trucks company cars are in fact eco-friendly models.
These are the results of a recent survey carried out by the MiljöRapporten magazine.

The number of eco-certified cars in the fleets of Sweden's 50 largest corporations has increased by 40 percent in just two years, from 595 to 1044. Almost one-quarter (451) of these are operated by Volvo Trucks.

Lars Mårtensson, director of environmental affairs at Volvo Trucks, maintains that it is not only financial inducements that lie behind the interest in pro-environmental cars within the company.

"Alongside interest in financial incentives such as tax relief and free parking in Göteborg, employees at Volvo show immense interest in wide-ranging environmental issues and they want to do their bit for the environment," says Lars Mårtensson

The car models that Volvo Trucks and its employees have at their disposal are mainly the Volvo V70 and Volvo S60 with Bi-Fuel engines, which can run on either natural gas or petrol.
