Sustainable transport KPI’s

Sustainable transport KPI’s

To be able to continuously improve, Scania measure and follow up on our performance. To facilitate tracking 18 sustainability KPI’s have been developed, all aligned with our sustainability focus areas.

Energy efficiency

Energy efficiency is at the core of our business. Fuel consumption is the number one factor for buying a truck or a bus today. Hence, we work relentlessly on improving the efficiency of our vehicles, the sales of our Ecolution programme, the number of drivers that takes part in our coaching and trainings, resulting in emission reduction and safer driving, and the amount of Scania Flexible Maintenance contracts.

Ecolution by Scania

In 2018, Scania Ecolution contracts has increased dramatically , reaching above 8,000 new contracts, more than doubling the total portfolio. The more goal oriented approach of Scania Ecolution 3.0 has been very well received by the customers.

Driver training

In 2018, the growth continued in line with previous years and clearly shows the great benefit of and appreciation for Scania Driver Training.

Driver coaching

The strategic direction to coach drivers based more on individual deviation analysis than on a regular, predefined pattern, led to a decrease in the actual number of coaching sessions. However the number of drivers being coached increased by 14 percent.

Scania maintenance with flexible plans

In 2018, Scania’s service Flexible Maintenance increased by 68 percent to 70,622 active contracts. We are reading operational data from all vehicles continuously and optimise the maintenance need accordingly to ensure maximum uptime for our customers.

Alternative fuels and electrification

In order to phase out the use of fossil fuels, alternative fuels can play a much bigger role than we see today, and we don’t need to wait: the technology is already here. Scania has produced solutions for commercial biofuels for more than 15 years, and we are proud to provide the largest variety of vehicles for alternativenfuels on the market, additionally all Scania vehicles can run on HVO. Electrification is growing fast, as of today Scania offers hybrid buses and trucks as well as battery powered electric buses.

Sales of alternative fuels and electrification
In 2018, Scania increased the number of vehicles sold with alternative fuels and hybrids, ended up on 4,540 vehicles which amounts to 4.5 percent of total vehicle sales.

Smart and safe transport

Smart and safe transport is dependent on digitalisation technologies to achieve the most efficient transport solutions for cities, industries or logistics. Since 2011, all Scania vehicles are equipped with the computer Scania Communicator as standard. The Communicator collects and analyses data in order for us to provide our customers, and in turn their customers, with ideas and solutions on how to improve efficiency in the transport value chain. Bus Rapid Transit systems (BRT) is an example of a transport system that positively contributes to economic and social development while being an environmentally smart solution to issues such as congestion or pollution in cities.


The growth rate of the overall number of connected vehicles were somewhat slowed down due to adjustment to the new GDPR regulations that came into force in 2018.


BRT bus registrations


In 2018, 297 new Scania buses are running in BRT systems. The target for 2020, is to register 750 new buses.
