"The Volvo Group's vision is to become the world leader in sustainable transport solutions and this robust report further proves what we have already found to be true; that reducing CO2 emissions can simultaneously contribute to the sustainability of companies and the climate. As a Climate Savers partner, the Volvo Group has set meaningful greenhouse gas emission reduction targets and, through our products, are helping our customers do the same. We hope this report helps motivate other companies to make similar commitments."

"In 2010, Mars committed to become Sustainable in a Generation by eliminating fossil fuel energy use and greenhouse gas emissions in our Operations by 2040 with a 25% reduction by 2015 - in line with the 3% annual goals. A sustainable approach to business is profitable and this report demonstrates we're not alone in that belief, or the approaches outlined here. We hope businesses will join this movement toward a more sustainable and productive future for all."
