Multi-stakeholder partnerships to share knowledge, expertise, technology and resources are key to delivering on the SDGs globally.
It is key to Scania remaining agile and enable us to have an influence on the future. We are staying as close as possible to the evolving ecosystem of sustainable transport by working with a range of different organisations. By working with public and private sector partners in an integrated way Scania believes that we can help find the shortest distance and time to a sustainable transport system. While this aim of our collaborations is ultimately the same, the point of departure varies. Scania believe it is through partnerships, with partners and our customers, that we can develop solutions to reach tangible results in reducing our carbon footprint while ensuring that we meet the demands of a growing population – profitably and sustainably.
The Pathways Coalition was formed by E.ON, H&M Group, Scania and Siemens to accelerate decarbonisation of heavy transport. The member companies commit to the vision of the Coalition, to the objective to reach zero CO2 latest by year 2050, to contribute with real action in the partnership and to contribute funds in accordance with joint decisions. Since it was formed in 2018, the coalition has driven debate around how to achieve sustainable transport. Topics highlighted in recent meetings included the importance of promoting common standards in biofuel availability, and the need to decarbonise the energy sector in parallel with transport electrification.
The World has united around 17 sustainable development goals, for all people and all sectors of society. Scania’s contribution to the achievement of these goals is to translate them into sustainable business solutions.
