The Volvo Group has 58 manufacturing facilities in 19 countries all over the world. All manufacturing units must satisfy the Group's minimum requirements for environmental performance and implement an improvement program.

Most of the plants satisfy the requirements by a
wide margin and are also continuously improving. Regular environmental audits with the purpose of ensuring that the plants follow the environmental policy have been carried out since 1989. In 2007, 96 % of the employees at our manufacturing facilities worked in accordance with ISO 14001.
