Konsortium E-Mutiara Berhad 1st in Asia to aim for reduction in CO2 emissions using Scania Ecolution
21 December 2018 – One of the most successful express bus operators in Malaysia – Konsortium E-Mutiara Berhad (E-Mutiara) – has become the first company in Asia to adopt Scania Ecolution to reduce their fleet’s carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions for the betterment of the environment.
Scania Ecolution is more than just a product or service, it is a tailor-made partnership that is designed to reduce CO2 emissions and reduce fuel consumption.
By applying a suite of Scania’s total solutions, a company’s sustainability commitment also gets a boost to meet the demand of consumers today for more responsible practices that add to the constant pressures on fleet operators for just-in-time deliveries and tight profit margins.
“Scania Ecolution will facilitate the shift towards a sustainable transport system for transport companies whether it is transporting goods or people. It is a competitive industry that is increasingly focusing on sustainability,” said Scania Southeast Asia Managing Director, Marie Sjödin Enström.
“More needs to be done to lower emissions globally to reduce global warming and address climate change. Scania Ecolution is a solution on how profitability can be achieved without sacrificing sustainability. By working together, we can make it even better,” added Marie.
E-Mutiara will work with a dedicated Scania Ecolution Manager who will monitor the progress and choose from our wide range of solutions to achieve the mutually agreed emission reduction target to achieve its sustainability goals and profitability in the long term.
The Kota Bharu based company has subscribed to Scania’s Fleet Management System, Scania Repair and Maintenance as well as Scania Driver Training and Coaching to enhance their own service offering and increase their productivity.
“E-Mutiara is truly at the forefront of change as they have always been and will continue to innovate ways to provide the best experience for their customers while taking responsibility to reduce their carbon footprint,” added Marie.
“We are happy to be collaborating with Scania to achieve our mission of becoming a more sustainable business and reducing our carbon footprint. We believe that this will also be appreciated by our passengers, knowing that they are going green by choosing us for their journey,” said E-Mutiara Executive Chairman, Tuan Haji Che Ibrahim B. Che Ismail.
