Volvo Pledges to Cut Carbon Emissions as a WWF Climate Savers Member

The World Wildlife Fund for Nature has been working since 1961 to raise money in support of conservation. Since then, the organization has blossomed into one of the most recognizable environmental groups on the planet.

Ask any biologist what the biggest threat to wildlife is, and nine times out of ten they'll tell you "climate change." (The one out of ten who says something different probably went off on an excited tangent about the species they are studying.) Naturally, one of the WWF's biggest goals is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

To that end, WWF began the Climate Savers program. Companies from all different sectors can voluntarily enroll to be a member -- but it isn't easy. Rather than a self-set goal for cutting emissions, Climate Savers must adhere to ambitious CO2 targets agreed upon by the WWF.

No wonder Volvo is the only automaker to join.

Volvo Group has a long history of environmental stewardship, including being the first to use oxygen sensors in a car. Pioneered on the Volvo 240, the innovation reduced exhaust emissions by up to 90 percent.
