Volvo has pledged to use 25% recycled plastic in all of its cars from 2025 in a bid to reduce the environmental impact of its production.
"We already work with some great, forward-thinking suppliers when it comes to sustainability; however, we do need increased availability of recycled plastics if we are to make our ambition a reality", stated Martina Buchhauser, Senior Vice President of Global Procurement at Volvo Cars.
As per a report by News18, Volvo's decision to use 25% recycled plastic products is made by roping in plastic producers to recognise this goal and work towards it.
Following suit, Volvo has unveiled a special version of its XCTO T8 plug-in hybrid SUV made using recycled materials.
The SUV, which was revealed on Sunday (June 17), has a tunnel console made from renewable fibres, plastics from discarded fishing nets and maritime ropes.
