Our value creation is underpinned by our corporate culture, which we call The Scania Way. Deeply ingrained in our business, this culture is based on five core values that reflect our way of thinking and guide our day-to-day actions and decision-making. They support us in creating value for our stakeholders and ultimately, in our aim to be the leader in the shift towards a sustainable transport system.
Our core values form the basis for all we do at Scania. They have been firmly anchored and integrated in Scania’s operations for generations. Our core values reflect and embody our thinking, our way of carrying out work and how we relate to each other and to others we meet outside the company – customers, suppliers, partners and society at large.
The core values guide our actions, support us in creating value for the company’s stakeholders and ultimately, in the aim to be a leader in the shift towards a sustainable transport system. We have to work closer together, embrace diverse perspectives, and find new ways to cooperate within and between our traditional organisations.
Based on the core values and the main principles, the management system (our common way of working) together with the thinking model (our common way of thinking) form the basis of our corporate culture – The Scania Way.
Our core values
Our customers are the starting point of everything we do.
We are only successful when our customers are successful, and we cooperate closely with them to understand their current and future business. We provide tailored solutions that deliver value, are sustainable and profitable, today and in the future.
We respect each individual, their skills and opinion.
We treat others with respect and expect to be treated with respect. We listen and understand. Everyone can contribute and has the potential to grow and learn over time. Respect is the foundation of all processes, all improvements, and all value creation.
We all win when we work as a team.
We work as one team towards a common goal, united by a joint purpose. A team includes everything from the smallest group of colleagues, through each brand, up to the TRATON Group itself and our partners. Together we succeed.
We take responsibility for society and environment.
We always act with integrity and look beyond our immediate areas of responsibility, considering the long-term impact of our actions.
We take responsibility both as a group and as individuals.
Elimination of waste
We minimise unnecessary cost by eliminating waste.
With a strong focus on continuous improvements, from strategic step changes to operational every-day changes, we ensure high-quality output and efficiency in all areas. We find and remove all activities that have no value to our end customers and seek to minimise the negative impact of our operations and products.
