Volvo Group is also a member of several trade associations around the world. We believe these memberships are important and that they can provide significant benefits for our business and industry. Most of these associations cover a much broader agenda than that of climate change mitigation but we seek to use our memberships to support the higher ambitions of the Paris Agreement’s goal to limit the global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, compared to pre-industrial levels.
As part of our commitment to deliver on the Paris Climate Agreement we take an active role in trade associations to assure that they contribute positively towards meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement. We have therefore reviewed and updated our way of working in relation to trade associations. A new governance model has been developed, including regular assessments, escalation structure and communication.
With our Annual Report, we provide a list of memberships(PDF, 180 KB) held by Volvo Group’s Business Areas or country Management Teams in the Group’s main markets of operations.
