Volvo Cars is committed to producing only electrified vehicles from 2019 onwards. From 2019 to 2021, the company will release five all-electric models.

This innovative electrification plan has been drawing the attention of some pretty important people and organizations. Take, for instance, the United Nations. The organization's Global Compact, the world's largest corporate sustainability initiative, recently recognized Volvo for its efforts to operate more responsibly and sustainably, heralding in a future of greener vehicles.

In addition to the progress Volvo has made in meeting the UN's Sustainable Development goals, or SDG's, Volvo has also been recognized by the Global Compact as a LEAD member. LEAD members are essentially the top-of-the top companies within the global compact. Companies like Volvo who are LEAD members show the most commitment to realizing a more sustainable future by taking the most initiative in pursuing a brighter tomorrow for everyone.
