SwedenScania AB, a commercial vehicle manufacturer and subsidiary of the Traton Group based in Södertälje, Sweden, has announced that it aims to entirely decarbonise its supply chain for battery and metal products by 2030. 

By the end of the decade, Scania aims to use only 100% “green” batteries, steel, aluminium and cast iron in its vehicle and components production. This entails acquiring only sustainably-sourced and recycled materials, and purchasing forged products made using renewable energy. For instance, Scania envisages that flat steel production will need to employ green hydrogen instead of coal in the future.
