To support the growth of future sustainability leaders Scania Malaysia has established a fund to motivate and assist primary schools in Malaysia start up curricular activities, extra-curricular activities or projects that focus on sustainability.
The “Master Sustainability By Scania” fund will be kicked off by Scania Malaysia and will continuously be replenished by a portion of vehicle sales revenue.
With the availability of the fund, the leading provider of sustainable transport is now calling on primary schools in Malaysia to share their ideas for sustainability, which will then be evaluated to get support by the fund.
“For Scania, doing the right things and doing things right is key. We can achieve a sustainable transport system and a responsible business by contributing to economic and social development without jeopardising human health and safety or endangering the environment”, said Managing Director of Scania Southeast Asia, Marie Sjödin Enström.
“The world population currently faces challenges with regard to climate and resources. This will have a tremendous impact on future generations which is why we should begin to change the ways in which we view our industries and lifestyles. One way of doing so is by facilitating the growth and nurture of young students to master sustainability” said Sjödin Enström.
“Today’s young generation possesses vigour, awareness and creativity which provides them with greater potential to become future sustainability leaders. To inspire and support their growth in sustainability, Scania Malaysia is calling on primary schools in the country to share their ideas with us on ways to save Mother Earth.”
“We want to nurture tomorrow’s sustainability leaders today with a long term goal to continue building awareness of sustainability. What better way than to support the ideas of the young who are already setting the global trends and are aware of the need to address how we interact with the environment.”
