Get to know Scania

Our core values

Our core values form the basis for all we do at Scania. They have been firmly anchored and integrated in Scania’s operations for generations. Our core values reflect and embody our thinking, our way of carrying out work and how we relate to each other and to others we meet outside the company – customers, suppliers, partners and society at large.

Customer first We are only successful when our customers are successful. By understanding our customers' business, we provide taylored solutions that make them winners in a sustainable transport system. The customer's operations and efficiency are at the center of our value chain. From R&D, sourcing and production to sales, delivery and financing of vehicles, engines and services.

Respect for the individual We treat others the way we want to be treated. We listen and understand. From drivers of our vehicles to all of our employees and society at large, the individual stands at the centre of all that we do. We seek to capture the knowledge, experience and ambition of each individual to continuously improve what we do, and how we do it.

Elimination of waste With a strong focus on continuous improvements throughout our entire organisation, we ensure safe and high quality output 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 resource efficiency while minimising our environmental footprint.

Determination We are dedicated all the way and motivated to reach beyond the next level. We take pride in meeting challenges with innovative solutions, and always learn from our experiences. Being aware of details, while fully understanding the bigger picture, generates value for us and our customers.

Team spirit To be number one in our industry, we are joining forces and work openly across borders, towards a common goal. We view differences and diversity as opportunities, and we challenge each other to become better. A shared sense of direction brings collective strength and a group belonging.

Integrity We recognise that we have a social responsibility and always strive to do the right things in the right way. We act in accordance with our culture, core values and principles. We follow all legal and compliance standards. Trust builds relationships with customers, business partners and society at large, making it one of our most important assets. We always keep our promises and are accountable for what we do.
