To be able to continuously improve, Scania measure and follow up on our performance. To facilitate tracking 18 sustainability KPI’s have been developed, all aligned with our sustainability focus areas.
Energy efficiency is at the core of our business. Fuel consumption is the number one factor for buying a truck or a bus today. Hence, we work relentlessly on improving the efficiency of our vehicles, the sales of our Ecolution programme, the number of drivers that takes part in our coaching and trainings, resulting in emission reduction and safer driving, and the amount of Scania Flexible Maintenance contracts.
Alternative fuels and electrification
In order to phase out the use of fossil fuels, alternative fuels can play a much bigger role than we see today, and we don’t need to wait: the technology is already here. Scania has produced solutions for commercial biofuels for more than 15 years, and we are proud to provide the largest variety of vehicles for alternativenfuels on the market, additionally all Scania vehicles can run on HVO. Electrification is growing fast, as of today Scania offers hybrid buses and trucks as well as battery powered electric buses.
|Sales of alternative fuels and electrification
||In 2018, Scania increased the number of vehicles sold with alternative fuels and hybrids, ended up on 4,540 vehicles which amounts to 4.5 percent of total vehicle sales.|
Smart and safe transport
Smart and safe transport is dependent on digitalisation technologies to achieve the most efficient transport solutions for cities, industries or logistics. Since 2011, all Scania vehicles are equipped with the computer Scania Communicator as standard. The Communicator collects and analyses data in order for us to provide our customers, and in turn their customers, with ideas and solutions on how to improve efficiency in the transport value chain. Bus Rapid Transit systems (BRT) is an example of a transport system that positively contributes to economic and social development while being an environmentally smart solution to issues such as congestion or pollution in cities.
