ON FRIDAY 20 September Scania reinforced its commitment to help save the planet by holding a Sustainability Day involving every one of its 52,000 employees worldwide.
Every member of Scania’s global team stopped work for an hour to discuss sustainability and explore ways in which every employee can contribute to the company’s eco-work going forward.
In the UK, Scania ran a series of workshops throughout the day to ensure every employee would be able to participate in the event. The workshops included Scania’s plans to drive the shift towards more sustainable transport solutions, including the transition from conventional fuels to biodiesel, biogas, hybrid and ultimately, electrification.
‘Scania has long stated its intention to be at the forefront as our industry makes the transition towards more sustainable products, services and working practices,’ comments Martin Hay, managing director for Scania (Great Britain) Ltd. ‘Our Sustainability Day represents a major investment by the company and is a manifestation of the depth of our commitment and thereby helping to address the threat posed by climate change.
‘With regard to global warming, Scania recognises the automotive industry has historically been part of the problem, and our intention now is to be part of the solution as well.’
