(PRESS RELEASE) GOTHENBURG, 23-May-2023 — /EuropaWire/ — The Volvo Group (STO: VOLV-B), a Swedish multinational manufacturing company, has announced a long-term agreement with Vattenfall, Sweden’s largest renewable electricity producer. The agreement entails Volvo Group committing to purchase 50% (approximately 230GWh/year) of the renewable electricity generated at Bruzaholm wind park in Sweden over a 10-year period, commencing in the last quarter of 2025.

This strategic partnership with Vattenfall represents a significant step towards Volvo Group’s ambitious goal of achieving a net-zero greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) value chain by 2040, aligned with the objectives of the Paris Climate Agreement. Bruzaholm wind park, comprising 21 wind turbines and supporting infrastructure, is slated to commence construction in the summer of 2023 and be operational by autumn 2025, coinciding with the start of the agreement.

Volvo Group is actively pursuing sustainable growth by offering customers electric products and biofuels as key solutions to reduce GHG emissions. Simultaneously, the company is diligently working to minimize its own operational carbon footprint and drive sustainability across its entire value chain in collaboration with its partners. Transitioning from fossil energy sources to renewable, low GHG-intensive energy sources like wind, solar, and hydropower is a crucial aspect of this commitment. The partnership with Vattenfall enables Volvo Group to further diversify its renewable energy sources and accelerates its journey towards achieving net-zero emissions.

By securing a reliable supply of renewable electricity from Bruzaholm wind park, Volvo Group solidifies its position as a leader in sustainable transportation and demonstrates its dedication to driving the transition to cleaner energy. The company remains committed to driving innovation and working towards a sustainable future in line with its comprehensive environmental objectives.

“This partnership marks an additional step in continuously reducing the environmental impact from our own industrial activities. The agreement signals our commitment to prioritize low-carbon investments, source renewable energy, and take climate action across everything we do.” says Martin Lundstedt, President and CEO of Volvo Group.

“The industry’s energy transition is taking place here and now – the key to success is collaboration, no one can tackle the challenge completely on their own. Today’s agreement is an example of how Volvo Group has chosen to be at the forefront of its electrification and climate work. We are pleased to be able to support them on their journey. By expanding fossil-free energy sources, collaborating to electrify processes that are currently based on fossil fuels, using our fossil-free electricity and developing charging infrastructure, we can contribute to the phasing out of fossil fuels in the entire transport sector,” says Vattenfall’s CEO and President Anna Borg.
