Scania takes the next step in its longstanding commitment to sustainability by signing the United Nations Global Compact. By doing so Scania confirms the company’s clear vision of its responsibility to its stakeholders.
The UN Global Compact is an initiative for businesses to commit to 10 universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour relations, environment and anti-corruption. By signing on to the UN Global Compact, Scania has pledged to make the Global Compact and its principles a part of the way that the company is managed, and to make a clear statement about this commitment to the company’s stakeholders and the general public.
“For Scania, this is a way to express its support for internationally recognised principles of sound business practices, and to apply clear and straightforward principles which can be communicated and applied throughout the company,” says Martin Lundstedt, President and CEO of Scania.
