Ahead of tomorrow’s Earth Hour 2017 Scania has pledged to make a major shift to using fossil free electricity by 2020.

While the company is a leader in pioneering sustainable solutions for its fleets, Scania also wants to ensure its energy usage across its production and operation sites are as clean as possible.

”Scania itself must be a forerunner in this shift. We place high demands on our suppliers to adhere to the highest environmental standards and deploy new and innovative technology. Many of our customers also have ambitious environmental targets,” says Anders Williamsson, Executive Vice President and Head of Purchasing, Scania.

The transport giant will aim to be using fossil free electricity in all countries where alternatives exist by 2020. Currently 79% of all energy generated or purchased by Scania internally comes from fossil sources, with electricity supplied for its operations in Denmark, France, Norway, Poland and Sweden already fossil free.
