Sustainable transport is all about moving people and goods while contributing to economic and social development without jeopardising human health and safety or endangering the environment.
Sustainable transport solutions
Scania’s approach to sustainable transport is based on three pillars: energy efficiency, renewable fuels and electrification, and smart and safe transport.
By using these pillars either individually or together, and combining them with our in-depth understanding of transport flows, we can provide sustainable transport solutions customised for any application.
Electrification is central in a sustainable, decarbonised transport system. Electric vehicles operate cleanly and quietly, with zero particles and NOx (nitrogen oxides) emissions and a greatly reduced total carbon footprint (electricity provided from fossil-free energy sources). Battery technology is improving rapidly, and other solutions such as fuel cell technology are in development.
Driving the shift is not something we can do on our own. Scania is working with others across industry, academia and government to make sustainable transport possible.
