How fossil free heavy transport can be achieved

Swedcham and Scania invites you to a presentation on:

How fossil free heavy transport can be achieved

In 2015, 195 nations agreed to work to keep average temperature rises below 2°C to prevent dangerous climate change, signing the Paris Agreement. Since then, more and more global companies are setting ambitious goals to reduce or eliminate CO2 on their products and value chain.

Taking in consideration that transport is key to the CO2 reduction, Scania has presented “The Pathways Study”, a study on how to achieve a fossil free heavy transport system by 2050, based on this knowledge, created the Pathways Coalition together with a group of other companies.

To understand what is needed to do and succeed with this important shift, we need actors from the whole ecosystem of transport and logistics driving this shift to a more sustainable transport system.
