Carbon footprint report
Volvo Cars has committed to only sell fully electric cars by 2030. This is the most ambitious transformation into electrification from any established car manufacturer and it is a key step for Volvo Cars to reach full climate neutrality across its entire value chain by 2040. In the short-term Volvo Cars is working towards reducing its life cycle carbon footprint per average vehicle by 40 per cent between 2018 and 2025. This plan, one of the most ambitious in the industry, is validated by the Science Based Target Initiative to be in line with the Paris Agreement of 2015, which seeks to limit global temperature rise to 1.5C above pre-industrial levels. Volvo Cars has also committed to communicating improvements from concrete short-term actions in a trustworthy way, including the disclosure of the carbon footprint of all new models.
The Volvo C40 Recharge is Volvo Cars’ second fully electric car, and the first model Volvo Cars launches that is only available as a fully electric version. The carbon footprint shows a great reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to that of an internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle, especially if the car is charged with renewable electricity. The carbon footprint is also lower than that of the XC40 Recharge, mainly thanks to improved aerodynamics.
