Scania Commemorates Singapore’s National Day by Nurturing Youths to ‘Master Sustainability’
August 9, 2018, Singapore – Scania Singapore has established a ‘Master Sustainability by Scania’ fund to groom children aged 12 and below to be future sustainability leaders in the country.
The fund, which will be continuously replenished by a portion of vehicle sales revenue, will support sustainability projects undertaken by primary schools and youth groups in Singapore.
“On Singapore’s 53rd birthday and this Year of Climate Action, we would like to reflect on the sustainable city we would like to build for our future generations,” says Anders Liss, Country Manager of Scania Singapore and Regional Director of Scania South Malaysia and Singapore. “It would be a Singapore where businesses operate responsibly and people enjoy a high quality of life with respect for the environment.”
He adds: “As a global leader in sustainable transport solutions, Scania wants to contribute to raising awareness of sustainability issues and cultivating responsible behaviours from a very young age. It may start with little moves to green the school buildings, to set up recycling corners or to make more energy-efficient choices. But the roots are already planted for them to be conscious that everyone can take action to reduce the impact of climate change.”
“By setting up ‘Master Sustainability by Scania’, we are recognising that the children of today will play a significant role in shaping the future we want,” he says.
With the availability of the fund, Scania Singapore is now calling on primary schools and youth groups to submit their project ideas that could be supported by the fund. These projects include sustainability-related curricular or co-curricular activities or special projects to green the physical environment.
Schools and youth groups are invited to submit their sustainability projects or activity ideas by emailing Scania Singapore at email@example.com.
