More efficient logistics reduced the Volvo Group’s carbon footprint by 22 percent
Between 2006 and 2010, emissions of carbon dioxide from the Volvo Group’s transportation of goods and products in Europe was reduced by 22 percent, measured as the average number of grams of carbon dioxide per ton per kilometer. This is one of the findings revealed in a report from Volvo Logistics, the Volvo Group’s logistics company, which develops and purchases transportation solutions. The report is a summary of the work that began in 2008 when Volvo Trucks and Volvo Logistics challenged its transportation suppliers. The reduction also includes transportation for Volvo Car Corporation.
