Renewable fuels giant, Neste, and manufacturers, Scania, are piloting a digital solution that enables easy follow-up and verification of each truck’s usage of renewable fuels.  

Combining data from Scania Fleet Management Portal with Neste’s fuel emission data, the solution will provide Scania’s customers with accurate, up-to-date data for their greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) reporting and sustainability communications. 

Customers can also compare the climate impact of their use of Neste’s renewable fuels to fossil fuels and track their continuous progress towards climate targets. 

Neste and Scania are testing the digital solution with logistic companies HAVI and UFF. The solution looks at where a certain truck has been refuelled and how much it has driven, with data about the climate impact as a result of the use of Neste MY Renewable Diesel instead of fossil fuel.  

Jacob Thärnå, head of sustainable transport at Scania, said: ‘Scania’s purpose is to drive the shift towards a sustainable transport system, creating a world of mobility that is better for the business, society and the environment. We are sure that data transparency, connectivity and partnerships in the ecosystem are vital to accelerating this journey, where energy efficiency, electrification, renewable fuels and smart and safe transport are all part of the solution. In this collaboration, our aim was to enable access to reliable, accurate and automated emissions calculations that could be used both in daily operations but also showcase the credibility of renewable fuels in the ecosystem.’

Massimo D’Alessandro, director of sustainability and innovation, HAVI, said: ‘HAVI is committed to net zero emissions by 2050 and we’re proud to work with our customers and partners to provide increasingly sustainable, digitally enabled and transparent supply chain solutions. With much of our European delivery fleet now powered by alternative fuels such as electrification, biogas and renewable diesel, we’re delighted that this pioneering digitalisation initiative from Scania and Neste enables automatic reporting into the real GHG reductions achieved on behalf of our customers. More widely, deliveries with a verifiably lower carbon footprint could also strengthen trust in the progress that is being made toward net zero.’  

Mats Hultman, head of OEM partnerships at Neste, said: ‘Together with Scania and our piloting customers, HAVI and UFF, we aim to demonstrate how climate data can create additional value and push the logistics industry towards lower emissions. Collaboration in the whole industry value chain is important when new solutions are developed, and this pilot is a good example of a customer-centric solution that paves the way for the whole industry to combat climate change.’
