Kostnads-nyttoanalys avseende CO2 neutrala produktionsanläggningar: Studie av Volvo Groups arbete med hållbar utveckling
Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Emissions of greenhouse gases increases the global mean temperature, which cause large and costly damage to society. To mitigate their contribution to the problem many companies engage in work with sustainable development. This thesis aims to look at the sustainability work at Volvo Group, specifically to calculate the net benefit to society as a result of four of their production facilities becoming CO2 neutral. Production facilities studied are; Volvo Trucks in Tuve and Ghent, Volvo Penta in Vara, and Volvo Construction Equipment in Braås. In order to estimate the net benefit to society a cost-benefit analysis was used. The cost-benefit analysis and its subsequent sensitivity analysis indicate that all four examined projects produce a positive net benefit to society. The conclusion is that the choice made by Volvo Group to engage in projects making their production facilities CO2 neutral has had an overall positive impact on society.
