A holistic approach towards sustainable transport
Our sustainable transport solutions are developed in close cooperation with our customers and other stakeholders and rest on three pillars:
- Energy efficiency, the most efficient technology for our products combined with services focusing on powertrain performance, vehicle optimisation and fuel consumption.
- Renewable fuels and electrification, the largest variety of engines for renewable fuels and electrifications technologies for vehicles and infrastructure.
- Smart and safe transport, through connectivity create more efficient logistical flows and greater filling rate.
Partnership is crucial for reshaping the ecosystem of transport and logistics and Scania is collaborating with society, policy makers, operators and customers.
Environmental initiatives regarding Scania’s products, processes and services are proactive and based on the precautionary principle and the life cycle perspective. With a strong focus on continuous improvements throughout our entire organisation, we ensure high quality output from environmental management in all areas. Deviations from targets and standards help us to identify and eliminate waste.
In everything we do, internally as well as externally, we strive to optimise our flow and undertake initiatives for resource efficiency. We have a strong focus on energy efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions from our operations. We supports the transition to a low-carbon society by responsible sourcing of energy and phasing out fossil fuels. We aim to contribute to a circular economy and reduce the amount of waste we generate while minimising our environmental footprint.
Scania commits to compliance of legal and other applicable requirements and self-appointed environmental targets. We are committed to transparent reporting with the aim to provide our stakeholders with regular and relevant information about our efforts.
Scania is committed to provide employees updated training. Awareness and engagement of our highly skilled employees enables us to take our responsibility and to drive the shift.
