A commitment to the environment
The environment is an issue common to all of us, and one that companies around the world should be joining together to engage. At UD Trucks, we carefully consider the environmental impact of all our activities, from the basic research and planning stages through to the materials used, our suppliers, the production process, use of the vehicles by our customers, through to recycling and final disposal. Our goal is to provide products that are created with forethought for the environment, and are focused on the effective use of resources and reduced environmental impact.
In the lifecycle of a truck, the largest share of greenhouse emissions released comes from CO2 generated during the actual operation of the truck. In 2004, UD Trucks developed the world’s first urea-based selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system for trucks, the Urea SCR System. A combination of ultra-high-pressure fuel injection and the Urea SCR System resulted in the development of the cutting-edge Final Low Emission New Diesel System, or FLENDS.
The Earth is our irreplaceable home UD Trucks is committed to doing all it can to preserve the global economy by acting in harmony with nature and realizing sustainable development, and to contributing to society by creating clean, safe and comfortable vehicles. And, as a member of the Volvo Group, UD Trucks’ environmental actions are in keeping with the direction of the Group’s highly regarded activities in this area.
