The transport sector is a significant contributor of global greenhouse gas emissions. As a major part of the problem, it is vital that our industry is part of the solution. To manage our climate impact and mitigate risk, we are committed to reducing emissions throughout our entire value chain and across all relevant scopes.
This means cutting carbon emissions not only from our own operations, but from the vehicles when they are in use by our customers as well as the emissions from the supply chain. Through our decarbonisation targets including our science-based targets, we have set clear goals for carbon reduction and defined the areas we need to prioritise in order to achieve them.
Scania takes a well-to-wheel approach to measuring carbon emissions from the vehicles in use. This takes into account carbon impacts across the value chain, starting with the production and distribution of fuel or electricity, all the way up to the tailpipe emissions from the vehicles while they are in use.
Through our science-based carbon reduction targets, we have set clear goals for carbon reduction and defined the areas we need to prioritise in order to achieve them. The Science Based Targets cover both our emissions from own operations (scope 1 and 2) and the emissions from the user phase of our products (Scope 3). Scania has also set complementing carbon reduction targets including a series of industry-leading carbon reduction targets in our supply chain.
These targets are part of our corporate targets, and guide our business decisions across business areas, from product development to production and sales priorities. Achieving these targets will require coordinated action across our entire organisation, as well as close collaboration with our customers and other partners across the transport ecosystem.
Cutting carbon emissions at every stage of our value chain is a key strategic priority for Scania. We have a set of specific decarbonisation targets, including two science-based targets, setting clear goals and expectations for reducing our value chain emissions.
Scope 1 and 2
- 50% CO2 reduction in operations 2015–2025 (CO2e)*
- 20% CO2 reduction from vehicles in use 2015–2025 (CO2e/km)
- Scope 3: 50% reduction in CO2 emissions from land transport per transported tonne 2016–2025 (CO2e)
- 25% less energy per produced vehicle in industrial operations 2015–2025
- 100% fossil-free electricity in industrial operations (achieved 2020)
Supply chain decarbonisation
- Scope 3: 100% green batteries, green steel, green aluminium and green cast iron in the European production system by 2030
Supply chain decarbonisation
Scania takes a whole value chain approach to decarbonisation, cutting emissions at every stage of our value chain. To understand our full carbon impact and identify areas for improvement we carry out ISO-approved lifecycle assessments. We calculate and report greenhouse gas emissions in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol Corporate Standard.
