Volvo has since early 90’s used the LCA methodology. In 2001 Volvo Trucks launched the first so called environmental product declaration for the FH and FM trucks, which is still unique for the truck industry. In this tool anyone, e.g. a customer, can easily calculate environmental quantities through choosing type of truck and make comparisons e.g. between hybrids and alternative fuels. Volvo Trucks acknowledge that transports are parts of most product life cycles and that we can contribute to the LCM work in companies. But maybe the most important usage is to raise the level of knowledge within Volvo Trucks, among our customers and society in general about the areas to focus and to have a holistic view.
