Scania reports progress on climate targets

18 March 2021

Scania said it has decreased carbon emissions by 43% from 2015 levels and is on track to achieve its target of a 50% reduction by 2025.

For the first time since Scania set its science-based targets, the company reports on the progress on emission reduction both from its own operations and from vehicles in use.

In its own operations, Scania said it has decreased carbon emissions by 43% from 2015 levels, through increased energy efficiency, reduction of energy waste and transfer to renewable energy. The company said it is on track to achieve the target of a 50% reduction by 2025.

“We are ahead of plan with the reduction of carbon emissions from our operations globally, a lot thanks to our transition to fossil-free electricity for all our production sites that we reached during 2020,” said Scania President and CEO Henrik Henriksson.

Scania has also committed to reduce CO2 emissions from its products in use by 20% by 2025 with a 2015 baseline.

“We also see progress in reducing the emissions from when our vehicles are in use, which constitutes over 90% of Scania’s total emissions,’ Henriksson said. Currently Scania is at 95.8%, a reduction of just above 4%. Starting at 100% in 2015, Scania said it aims to reach 80% by 2025 at the latest. Carbon emissions from Scania’s products in use are measured as well-to-wheel emissions generated in the production of the fuel or electricity are taken into account.

Scania said more significant steps are underway, as it continues to work closely with customers, focusing on energy efficiency in the conventional powertrain and increasing the share of biofuels which has an immediate as well as a retroactive effect on the rolling fleet of vehicles.

Scania said it will ramp up the volumes of electric vehicles with at least one new electric product application commercially launched in the bus or truck segment annually.

“Our climate targets are deeply embedded in daily decisions we make across the company,” Henriksson said. “They are fundamental to our strategy and part of our corporate targets. They are our North Star – a guide that shows us the direction. We seek to continuously improve the environmental performance of our products, processes and services.”
