SDG 17 – Partnership for the goals

Strengthen the means of implantation and revitalise the global partnership for sustainable development.

Multi-stakeholder partnerships to share knowledge, expertise, technology and resources are key to delivering on the SDGs globally.

It is key to Scania remaining agile and enable us to have an influence on the future. We are staying as close as possible to the evolving ecosystem of sustainable transport by working with a range of different organisations. By working with public and private sector partners in an integrated way Scania believes that we can help find the shortest distance and time to a sustainable transport system. While this aim of our collaborations is ultimately the same, the point of departure varies. Scania believe it is through partnerships, with partners and our customers, that we can develop solutions to reach tangible results in reducing our carbon footprint while ensuring that we meet the demands of a growing population – profitably and sustainably.

In 2017 Scania joined the Global Industry Partnership, with a commitment to provide modern soot-free buses to 20 major cities in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Australia. The initiative is led by the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) and UN Environment in cooperation with the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group and the Centro Mario Molina, Chile.
