Volvo Canada and Bullfrog Power have announced a partnership for renewable energy.
“By drawing on green electricity, Volvo is helping to reduce our dependence on polluting forms of energy and transition Canada to renewable energy sources”, said Sean Drygas, Spark Power Vice President, Sales, Marketing, Strategy & Sustainability.
Bullfrog Power’s generators will put clean, pollution-free electricity onto the grid to match the amount of conventional power that Volvo Canada uses at its head office. Bullfrog’s green energy comes from a blend of wind and low-impact hydropower sourced from new Canadian renewable energy facilities.
Sustainability is as important as safety
“At Volvo, sustainability is just as important as safety,” said Matt Girgis, Managing Director of Volvo Canada “Choosing to support our head office with 100% renewable energy is a simple and effective way for us to demonstrate our commitment to a clean energy future.”
Volvo Canada aims to become a climate-neutral company by 2040, the company also aims to reduce carbon emissions in its manufacturing network, wider operations, supply chain and through the recycling and reuse of materials.
In 2020, Volvo had announced that its global plants were powered by 50% climate-neutral energy. The same year, 95% of its global production waste had been recycled. Most recently, Volvo Cars aims for fully electric cars to make up 50% of its global sales by 2025.
