Scania is a global business. That is why we see it as our responsibility to act in different situations and problems that appear wherever we are based. These may be situations that do not necessarily have anything to do with transport – but which nonetheless can deeply can affect the community of which we are a part. If the wider society has problems, we will find it hard to inspire people to think about transport solutions.
We want to help ensure there are a broad range of activities in the community. Nevertheless, we do not go into partnership with just any organisation. We still want to talk and educate people about how we all can act in a more sustainable way. Our 48,000 employees around the globe and their families can also have an important role to play in talking and even acting on sustainability in their communities.
Where do we engage?
We have not decided on any selected themes in sports, arts or other areas. We are led by the specific local circumstances into what is exciting, interesting and engaging for the community in question. But what we do want is for our partners to help us to drive the shift towards a sustainable transport system. So, when we sponsor a sports team, we look into the team’s travel schedule and help it to travel sustainably. We also provide education and information to children’s teams (and their families) on how we all can act more sustainably. Or perhaps we help festival organisers to arrange their event in a more sustainable way.
If you would like to be a partner with Scania at a local level, please be prepared to tell us how you and your organisation can help us to educate your community on sustainability.
