Volvo Cars, the global premium car maker with its Car Group in operation since 1927, has set an ambitious target that from 2025, at least 25 percent of the plastics used in every newly launched Volvo car will be made from recycled material.

The company urged auto industry suppliers to collaborate closely with car makers to develop components that are sustainable to the extent possible, especially containing more recycled plastics. The company has introduced a specially-built version of its XC60 T8 plug-in hybrid SUV replacing several of its plastic components with recycled materials.

Håkan Samuelsson, President, and CEO of Volvo Cars, said, “Volvo Cars is committed to minimising its global environmental footprint. Environmental care is one of Volvo’s core values and we will continue to find new ways to bring this into our business. This car and our recycled plastics ambition are further examples of that commitment.”

The interior of special XC60 Volvo car has a tunnel console built from renewable fibers and plastics from discarded fishing nets and maritime ropes. PET plastic bottles and a recycled cotton mix from clothing manufacturers’ offcuts have been used in seats. Used car seats from old Volvo cars were used to create the sound-absorbing material under the car bonnet.

Martina Buchhauser, Senior Vice President of Global Procurement at Volvo Cars, commented, “We already work with some forward-thinking suppliers when it comes to sustainability. However, we do need increased availability of recycled plastics if we are to make our ambition a reality. That is why we call on even more suppliers and new partners to join us in investing in recycled plastics and to help us realise our ambition.”
