For this reason it is particularly exciting to be part of this short list and to gain recognition for our long-term work within the area of Corporate Social Responsibility.

The European Business Awards is a completely independent programme designed to recognise and celebrate business excellence across the 25 territories of the EU. The programme is supported by forward-thinking organisations that have a desire to recognise best practice, innovative business processes, and overall business success across the region. This year 10 finalists have been chosen within each of six categories, of which Volvo Cars was nominated for the AXA Award for Corporate Sustainability.
The judges of the Corporate Social Responsibility award looked for evidence of a clearly expressed and widely communicated corporate sustainability strategy with a main focus on actions launched to manage risk prevention from a commercial, environmental, governance and social development perspective above and beyond the requirements set by legislation.
These were the ten finalists:
