More bus travel needed to reach climate target
23 SEPTEMBER 2016
Time is running out and immediate action is required to fulfil the Paris climate target of no more than a two-degree global warming.
At IAA, Scania outlined three cornerstones that are crucial for achieving sustainable transport:
- Smarter transport to make public transport an attractive alternative to passenger car travel through, for example, rapid bus systems,
- Energy savings by a host of measures, including electrification,
- Replacement of fossil energy with renewable energy with the increased use of alternative fuels.
Scania’s three buses on display at IAA all contribute to this end. Jonas Kempe and Anna Carmo e Silva, Scania Buses and Coaches, outline how these buses contribute to the shift towards more sustainable transport.
