The Volvo Group recognized the Maryland legislature and Governor Wes Moore on the signing of the state’s Clean Trucks Act of 2023, which represents the approach to transitioning the state’s medium- and heavy-duty transportation sector to zero-emissions vehicles.

The Volvo Group says it worked with lawmakers and other interested stakeholders to provide input that was reflected in the Act. Consultation with multiple state agencies including the Department of Transportation, the Energy Administration, the Department of General Services and the Public Service Commission will ensure that economic, energy and environmental considerations will be factored into an overarching plan, the Volvo Group says. 

The Volvo Group adds it shares Maryland’s “commitment to the environment, and to the goal of accelerating adoption of zero-emission vehicles in the marketplace.” In 2020, the Volvo Group says it made a global commitment to having 100% of its product sales be fossil-free by 2040, including a nearer-term goal of 35% of product sales being zero-emission by 2030.
