Scania and Neste join for climate impact digital solution

Scania has announced it is measuring the positive impact of renewable fuel use alongside fuel supplier Neste

Scania is at the forefront of a new digital tracking solution that is being tested in Europe to provide businesses with a way of measuring the impact their choice of renewable fuel has on the environment.

The idea uses the Scania Fleet Management Portal, combined with Neste’s fuel emission data to provide up to date data on greenhouse gas emissions for reporting and sustainability communications.

Neste and Scania are testing the digital solution together with logistic companies, including HAVI.

The solution combines data on where a certain truck has been refuelled and how much it has driven, with data about climate impact from the use of Neste MY Renewable Diesel.

“The purpose of our unique collaboration is to test, together with a fleet manufacturer, how to verify the use of renewable fuels and accurately report the climate impact,” Neste’s head of OEM partnerships Mats Hultman says.

“Our pilot with Scania started by finding out the challenges that transport companies currently face in developing the sustainability of their fleet and related sustainability reporting.

“We invited customers in the transport business to take part in interviews to provide the service design team at Scania with a deeper understanding of their sustainability development challenges.

“Encouraged by the successful pilot in Finland, we are now looking into expanding the solution to the new markets.”

The pilot fits well with Scania’s desire to minimise its impact on the environment.

“Scania’s purpose is to drive the shift towards a sustainable transport system, creating a world of mobility that is better for business, society and the environment,” Scania’s head of Sustainable Transport Jacob Tharna says.

“We are sure that data transparency, connectivity and partnerships in the ecosystem are vital to accelerate this journey, where energy efficiency, electrification, renewable fuels and smart and safe transport are all part of the solution.

“In this collaboration our aim was to enable access to reliable, accurate and automated emissions calculations that could be used both in daily operations but also showcase the credibility of renewable fuels in the ecosystem.”

For logistics operator HAVI, the pilot is another way for them to measure their progress towards at target of net zero emissions by 2050.

HAVI is utilising a range of fuels for its fleet, including battery electric, biogas and renewable diesel.

Director of Sustainability and Innovation at HAVI, Massimo D’Alessandro, says having deliveries with a verifiably lower carbon footprint would strengthen trust in the progress of the organisation’s progress towards its zero emissions future.
