It´s our foremost mission. To create value for our customers. We express it in our core values: quality, safety and care for the environment – three pillars forever inseparable from the Volvo brand. Volvo trucks are built for high performance and high availability, whatever the application, climate or work conditions. The value lies in a productive fleet, a profitable operation and hassle-free ownership.
But it doesn't end there. True value means looking beyond the here and now, aiming at doing good in the long term and working towards true sustainability. True value goes outside and beyond the customer’s wallet: value for the environment, our society and for future generations. A constant supply of goods is taken for granted. Disruptions of trade are unacceptable. Society depends on efficient road transport and sustainable transport solutions. Every single cog in this machinery matters. Such as the choice of trucks. The truck brand makes a difference. Then, not only the performance, but also the visions and ambitions of the brand become important. More and more, brands are expected to offer real value. Today, people demand good behavior from the brands they select. No more shortsighted get-rich-quick schemes. No more turning the blind eye to pollution. No further acceptance of over-exploitation, arrogance and greed. A new generation of world citizens affiliate with brands on grounds of identification, of personal trust and shared values. Brands are selected for their ethics and integrity. At Volvo Trucks, we aspire to live up to the highest standards, to offer nothing but true value. For the Volvo Trucks brand, true value means taking our carbon footprint seriously, pioneering the development of alternative fuels and active emission reductions. It means taking responsibility for the product after its operational lifecycle: Volvo components are coded for disassembly and re-use, recycling and recovery. In fact, 90% of a Volvo truck can be recycled.
As a company we are committed to operations and manufacturing processes without depletion of the world’s resources. Volvo’s commitment to traffic safety is true value to society at large. True value is created when a brand gets actively involved in the health, welfare and development of the communities where its activities are. It means a brand that is based on respect for people and that promotes good working conditions for all employees. A brand that is fair, responsible and oriented towards long-term commitments and sustainability.
Volvo Trucks takes a deep and broad social responsibility – as an employer, as a buyer of products and services and as a committed member of society, locally and globally. Above all, we contribute with products and knowledge that help make life safer for those who use and encounter our trucks in their everyday lives. As well as concern for the environment, safety is one of our core values, and our work for safer vehicles, safer drivers and safer roads has given us a worldwide reputation in the field. Our vision is that no harm should come to anyone using our products. And this goes for everything around them, out on the roads, as well. These brand stories are about Volvo trucks, about how drivers and fleet owners depend on their performance on a day-to-day basis. It’s about how Volvo Trucks creates true value through innovation, working together with clients and consumers, in an ever ongoing process. Feel free to join in and make a difference.
