Volvo CE at the forefront of the construction industry shift to a sustainable future

In this presentation, Ahcène will discuss the market leading innovation journey of Volvo CE as the company has one of the widest range of electric construction machines available on the market today. He will show how Volvo CE is taking concrete action to deliver on its SBTi targets, and how the company boosts its electrification transformation with investment and working in pioneering partnerships.
