Scania New Zealand’s local team joined a global effort to raise awareness on climate change

Scania New Zealand’s commitment to driving the shift towards a sustainable transport system was further demonstrated recently with their local team joining a global effort to raise awareness of climate change.

Climate Day at Scania took place during late September as a forerunner to the United Nations Climate Action Summit in New York. On this day, operations at Scania’s head office as well as at production sites and local Scania units across the world stopped for one hour.

Scania’s CEO and president Henrik Henriksson reinforced the importance of this effort by saying, "Business has an important part to play in fighting climate change. We cannot stand idly by and wait for others to take action. I would like to challenge other companies to take action and, hopefully, we can generate great impact together."

"We take climate change very seriously, and that’s why in New Zealand, we completed a one-hour training session on sustainability with key short, medium, and long-term actions on how we can make changes in our everyday lives," says Laura Blackburn, Scania New Zealand’s marketing and communications manager.

Scania’s commitment includes:

  • Cutting CO2 emissions by 50% from its land transport per transported tonne by 2025
  • To cut CO2 emissions in its operations by 50% by 2025
  • Switching to 100% fossil-free electricity by 2020
  • Offer the broadest range of products on the market that run on alternatives to fossil fuel
