Decarbonisation requirements mandatory after September 4th 2023

Dear Suppliers,

Last year we informed you on the development of our 2030 supply chain decarbonisation strategy and its requirements per hotspot material of batteries, steel, aluminium and cast iron. Also, we sent out a decarbonisation questionnaire to map your current status on fulfilling these requirements and to know your current and future roadmaps in the decarbonisation journey.

We really appreciate your collaborative efforts in answering the decarbonisation questionnaire.

With this, we would now like to continue ahead in the strategy and make these requirements mandatory as part of sourcings. This means that all automotive purchasing sourcings starting after 4th September 2023 would need to have the requirements in place if the sourcing contains parts/components containing any of the hotspot materials/component: Flat Steel, Long Steel, Batteries, Cast Aluminium or Wrought Aluminium.

The requirement details are now published as “requirement specification” documents at the Scania Supplier portal. We would like you to accept these as part of the sourcing based on the material present in the parts/components you are supplying to us. Also, for every sourcing, we would like you to confirm your compliance with our requirements by filling/updating the decarbonisation questionnaire.

The link to the online questionnaire and the detailed requirement specifications will be present as part of the RFQ package sent out to you through a decarbonisation letter.

We look forward to continuing the decarbonisation work with you.
