Volvo Group is on a mission to reduce its carbon emissions by 30 million tons from construction equipment, buses and trucks manufactured through 2014. In order to do that, Volvo Group has joined forces with the Construction Equipment and Buses arms of the company to cooperate with WWF Climate Savers.

Besides, Volvo's joint-venture company, SDLG, which manufactures construction equipment in China, will also become the first-ever Chinese company to be a member of Climate Savers.

WWF is one of the world's largest environmental organizations and its Climate Savers program involves multinational companies making a commitment to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. These companies pledge to reduce their emissions in accordance with an agreement between the WWF and the company. Independent technical experts then review the results.

The agreed target must be more ambitious than the company would have set on its own, and must also indicate that the company is leading its sector in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
