Scania Regional Product Centre Takes One Step Further from Climate Day Initiative

Port Klang, 11 September – Scania Regional Product Centre (RPC) recorded another milestone in their history with a Tree-Planting exercise targeted at battling climate change and preservation of the environment. The event was held at the RPC assembly plant in Port Klang and was attended by Marie Sjödin Enström, the Managing Director of Scania Southeast Asia, Ms. Chun Eunjoo, Chief Financial Officer of Scania Southeast Asia and Mr. Lennart Wiksten, Head of Regional Product Centre.

This tree-planting is in accordance with ‘Scania’s 2025 Strategy’ and the several initiatives to combat the worrying climate change. In the lead-up to the UN Climate Action Summit in New York last year, Scania pledged to setting science-based carbon reduction targets, committing to reducing emissions at the scale and pace science dictates necessary to limit global warming to 1.5 °C. This commitment represents a radical leap forward in Scania’s carbon-reduction ambitions, as the targets cover not only from Scania’s customers vehicles while they are in use but also emissions from Scania’s direct operations.

The 40 RPC personnel make-shifted a landscaped garden made from recycled materials and was proud to be part of this historic moment. This was the location where three saplings for the first ever tree-planting exercise for a Scania outfit, was planted. Marie was honoured with the planting of the Spurflower or scientifically known as Plectranthus ecklonii while Eunjoo embedded the ‘Bunga Raya,’ the National Flower of Malaysia, scientifically known as the Hibiscus rosa sinensis and Lennart planted the Star Cluster with the scientific name of Pentas lanceolata.

“Scania’s aim is to drive the shift towards a sustainable transport system, creating a world of mobility that is better for business, society and the environment. Here in Malaysia, we continue to provide solutions like Ecolution to our customers to reduce CO2 emissions while continuing our efforts to reduce carbon footprint in our offices, workshops and production,” said Marie.

“As part of the production system, we also contribute with the work against climate challenges. We in production and logistics have a target to reduce the carbon emissions by 50 % by 2025. One year ago, we took part in the globally initiated Scania Climate Day. The result of that day was many good ideas on how to protect our climate. Our improvements from the RPC, together with other ideas and initiatives from our colleagues in the knock-down (KD) world from Taiwan, Thailand, India, Russia, Sweden Brazil and South Africa are coordinated in the KD sustainability forum and is led by our Manager, Subramanian Bala. It was also on his initiative that we should do this symbolic gesture to plant these trees at the RPC to show our commitment to Scania’s sustainability strategy to drive the shift,” stated Lennart.

Established in 1994, the Port Klang RPC assembly plant, one of the six RPCs worldwide was responsible for rolling out the first CKD Scania Trucks and Buses in 1995. It has since then grown in leaps and bounds to be one of the best professionally run assembly plants in the world.

Marie Sjödin Enström, the Managing Director of Scania Southeast Asia explaining the need to help our customers to reduce CO2 emissions and also reduce Scania’s carbon footprint at own offices, workshops and assemblies. This is in line with Scania's aim in driving the shift towards a sustainable transport system.
