Scania announced that all its ten major production facilities worldwide are now powered by fossil-free electricity, the target set for 2020. The final large production plant to phase out fossil energy has been Scania’s production plant in Tucumán in Argentina, which will be supplied by electricity from a wind farm. Of the ten production plants, three are located in Sweden and two in the Netherlands with one each in Argentina, Brazil, Finland, France and Poland. Together they annually consume nearly 450,000 MWh. The transition to fossil-free electricity corresponds to annual savings of 33,000 tonnes CO2e. In 2019, Scania produced 91,700 trucks, 7,800 buses as well as 10,200 industrial and marine engines.

By 2025, Scania aims to halve its carbon footprint, both in its industrial and commercial operations compared to 2015. The same reduction will be achieved in land transport operations per transported tonne.
