Responsible business KPI’s

Responsible business KPI’s

To be able to continuously improve, Scania measure and follow up on our performance. To facilitate tracking 17 sustainability KPI’s have been developed, all aligned with our sustainability focus areas.

Resource and energy efficient operations

Resource and energy efficiency sits deep in our culture at Scania. Our core value elimination of waste guides us in our work to continuously improve our processes in areas such as CO2 emissions, energy, amount of waste, and the purchase of fossil-free electricity.

CO2 emission from our own transport1

The emission level per produced vehicle went up during 2017 due to the increased demand on production.

50% reduction in CO2 emissions from land transport between 2016 and 2025.

Energy consumption from our industrial facilities2

Energy consumption has decreased per produced vehicle due to higher volumes and an active work to reduce waste. Amounts to 7,2 MWh per vehicle.

33% Less energy per produced vehicle in industrial operations between 2010 and 2020.

Waste material that is not recycled3

The quantity of waste sent for energy recovery and waste sent for disposal is reduced by 24 percent 2015-2017.

25% reduction of waste, in our industrial operations, that is not recycled.

Fossil free electricity purchased and internally generated4

In 2017 Scania continued to purchase fossil free electricity. More than 95 percent in our industrial operations now comes from fossil free sources.

100% of our operations run on fossil free electricity by 2020, where the necessary prerequisites are in place..

Diversity and inclusion

At Scania, we strive to have a diverse organisation in terms of gender, age, background and experience. An inclusive culture, giving everyone the same opportunities, is essential to our success.

Diversity and inclusion index6

The work that has been done in for example the skill capture program has resulted in an increase on the index from 76 percent 2016 to 78 percent 2017.

85% on the related questions in the Employee Satisfaction Barometer.

Gender equal opportunities5

  1. Total emissions of CO2 equivalents in tonnes from Scania’s own transport/produced number of units. Included in transport are transport of production material to our factories, transport of vehicles to our customers and transport of spare parts to our workshops.
  2. This section covers the use of various energy sources in all Scania premises, including leased or rented within production and logistics excluding regional production centres, including fuel consumed for engine testing.
  3. Sum of waste sent for energy recovery and waste sent for disposal divided by the total number of units produced (Waste sent for energy recovery + waste sent for disposal / Produced units). Waste sent for energy recovery = Waste used as a fuel due to its energy content, e.g. to produce hot water, steam or electricity. Waste sent for disposal = Waste sent for incineration without energy recovery and/or waste deposited at landfill.
  4. Fossil-free electricity purchased and internally generated. Share of GWh for Scania CV’s industrial operations in Scania Europe and Scania Latin America, without commercial operations, and without India. Target concerns markets where there is a deregulated electricity market and availability of non-fossil alternatives in the grid.
  5. Percentage of female managers in relation to percentage of female employees compared to the same number for men.
  6.

The result is covering Sweden, Great Britain and Brazil.
  7. Risk assessment of direct material suppliers globally from Self assessment questionnaire (SAQ). Scania SAQ score: 75-100%, 25-74%, 0-24% and not assessed.
