Volvo Canada Gets 100% Clean Electricity for Head Office

One more step for Volvo towards carbon neutrality across its operations

  • Volvo continues its push towards carbon neutrality with new clean electricity for Canada head office

Volvo Canada will partner with Bullfrog Power to receive 100% clean electricity to light up its head office.

The energy supplied is pollution-free thanks to Bullfrog’s wind and hydro power which comes from Canadian renewable energy facilities.

“At Volvo, sustainability is just as important as safety,” said Matt Girgis, managing director of Volvo Car Canada Ltd. “Choosing to support our head office with 100 per cent renewable energy is a simple and effective way for us to demonstrate our commitment to a clean energy future.”

This latest move comes as Volvo has its sight set on achieving carbon neutrality by 2040. The goal aims to not only eliminate emissions from its vehicles, but also to eliminate pollution through its entire chain, from production to operations.

In 2020, Volvo announced that its plants were powered by 50% climate neutral energy and that the company had managed to recycle 95% of its global production waste.

Volvo is also turning towards electrification within its model lineup to achieve its goals. The company unveiled the new C40 Recharge fully-electric small SUV in February, a second EV after the XC40 Recharge unveiled last year.

The Swedish automaker aims to have 50% of its vehicle sales be fully-electric models by 2025.
