Product life cycle approach

Product life cycle approach

A product lifecycle approach helps Scania understand and minimise the impacts at every phase of the vehicle’s life, while investing the greatest effort in addressing areas of highest potential impact.

The lifecycle of a heavy vehicle begins with materials supply and ends at recovery. But the lion’s share of the impact – almost 90 percent – occurs when the vehicle is on the road. Energy use and emissions of CO2 and other substances are key focus areas in every phase.
