At Scania, our sustainability efforts aim to transform our industry by focusing on significant impacts and opportunities across the value chain.
Demand for transport is growing. At the same time, efficiency is becoming a key driver for customers. This means sustainability has to be a condition for building the business. As well as reducing our own footprint, our sustainability approach is about developing innovative, low-carbon products and services for all our markets, and working with partners upstream and downstream to cut impacts and create value.
On these pages you will find an overview of our sustainability strategy and performance in 2012.
We place special emphasis on four areas.
In 2012 sustainability was further integrated into Scania’s business strategy. It is now a stated top management ambition to be regarded as a leading provider of sustainable transport solutions.
Towards sustainable transport
To be sustainable we must decouple transport growth from CO2 emissions and shift thinking from being a transport provider to becoming a provider of transport solutions. Ecolution by Scania shows how we are doing this.
How Scania works
Sustainability starts by doing things right at home. Scania is committed to high ethical, social and environmental standards wherever and with whoever we do business. That is why in 2012 we signed up to the UN Global Compact.
