Sustainability Summit

scania summit-7feb18-aKuala Lumpur, 7 February 2018 – Sustainable, automatised and digitalised solutions can enhance lives of society and improve profitability. This was shared by Scania at the shift towards sustainable transportation at the Sweden-Southeast Asia Business Summit (SSEABS).

The Summit was held in the presence of associated parties locally and around the region including Alexander Mastrovito, head of sustainable transport solutions Scania Asia and David Lantz, sustainability manager, Southeast Asia.

“The future of transport will be increasingly sustainable, automatised and digitalized, so we
are investing heavily in these areas. But no one knows exactly what the future will look like. Business models will change and value will be created in a different way than today,” said Erik Ljungberg, senior vice president and head of corporate relations.

“The transportation industry is undergoing rapid changes right now. We are approaching a tipping point where the convergence of technology and business models will accelerate the change and where the demand of sustainable transport solutions will take off and become the new normal,” he added.

The Sweden-Southeast Asia Business Summit 2018 was a follow-up to the inaugural business summit in 2016. It was jointly hosted by Team Sweden in Malaysia, which includes the Embassy of Sweden, Business Sweden and the Malaysian Swedish Business Association (MASBA) and had participation from Swedish companies across business sectors ranging from service to manufacturing and retail in Southeast Asia.
