Volvo Cars Announces An OpenChain Conformant Program

Volvo Cars has announced an OpenChain ISO/IEC 5230:2020 conformant program.

“Volvo Cars is committed to a sustainable, meaningful approach to open source engagement,” says Mary Wang, Director of Open Source at Volvo Cars. “Our adoption of ISO/IEC 5230 for helping to manage open source license compliance is part of this strategy. We look forward for working with the OpenChain Project and community as we expand the scope of our program over time, and contribute knowledge and experience to our peers and suppliers.”

“We are delighted to welcome Volvo Cars to our community of conformance,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain General Manager. “We are also grateful for their choice to publicly announce this program, and allow us to add their logo alongside contemporaries such as Toyota on our website. The positive momentum in the automotive industry around using ISO standards for open source supply chain management serves as an inspiration to all industries, and is an example of how open source has become not only core to software development, but also aligns with professional, sustainable management practices.”
