Scania Places First Green Steel Order
Commercial vehicle manufacturer Scania took a big step toward decarbonizing its supply chain by placing its first order for green steel.
The company signed an initial contract with H2 Green Steel, and deliveries of the sustainably produced product are set for 2027.
"With this first order from our strategic partner H2 Green Steel, we are continuing our progress towards minimizing the climate impact from our supply chain," said Anders Williamsson, Executive Vice President and Head of R&D and Purchasing at Scania, in a statement.
Manufacturing a truck requires about four tons of steel.
The agreement with H2 is a key part of Scania’s strategy to eliminate the largest sources of carbon emissions from the most emitting production materials and batteries.
The goal of Scania’s overall decarbonization strategy is to phase out the main sources of CO2 emissions in its supply chain by 2030, including a target of using 100 percent green steel, 100 percent green batteries, 100 percent green aluminum, and 100 percent green cast iron in its production in Europe.
