Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
Today the transport sector is responsible for almost a quarter of total energy related CO2 emissions. Climate change is one of the greatest threats to our planet. Changing the way we use energy is a crucial factor in delivering in goal 13.
Scania is working intensively to minimise greenhouse gas emissions from the full lifecycle of our products and our operations. We have a long-term vision for our operations to be carbon neutral. To be able to deliver the goals of the Paris Agreement, the world will have to halve its emissions every decade. On this basis, in 2017 Scania set a new target of reducing CO2 emissions by 50 percent in all of our operations between 2015 and 2025. We will achieve this in three ways: firstly, through elimination of waste by optimised production processes; secondly, activities specifically aimed at improving our energy efficiency; and thirdly, converting to using renewable sources. A crucial milestone on this journey is the target that all purchased electricity will be fossil-free by 2020.
