Our Code of Conduct supports and respects the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights. It highlights the most important human rights issues that our suppliers and partners must adhere to.
We have an active non-discrimination programme, which includes Diversity and Inclusive Leadership (DIL) training courses for all our managers. As an example of its success, the share of female senior executives is now above 20% - and is increasing yearly.
Health and safety
The Volvo Production System provides occupational risk assessment tools, indicators to measure health and safety and a methodology for ergonomic workplace assessment. Employees are also encouraged to report all incidents, so preventative action can be taken.
Freedom of association
Our employees, all around the world, are free to join labour associations and unions. And if they wish, they have the right to abstain from a union, too.
Our dedication to social responsibility means that we support a range of education programmes and health and safety projects. The majority of our social commitments take place at a local level – where we can make a big difference.
