Volvo Cars Torslanda plant achieves climate neutral status

The plant is also reducing its energy use and aims to save around 20,000 MWh by 2023.

Volvo has announced that its Torslanda factory in Sweden has become its first car manufacturing plant to reach climate neutral status.

Torslanda is the second plant in Volvo's manufacturing network to achieve this status. In 2018, the Skovde engine plant in Sweden had become climate neutral.

A Volvo Cars factory is considered fully climate neutral when it registers no net increase in the emission of greenhouse gases as a result of the electricity and heating used by the plant.

The Torsland plant has been powered by climate neutral electricity since 2008. It now has climate neutral heating. Half of the plant’s heating comes from biogas, while the rest is sourced from district heating through industrial waste heat. The plant is also reducing its energy use and aims to save around 20,000 MWh by 2023.
