SSAB and Scania have signed a letter of intent to decarbonize all steel deliveries from SSAB to Scania's heavy-duty vehicles in 2030. Deliveries of SSABs Fossil-free steel is targeted to ramp up rapidly from smaller amounts starting in 2026 and will be key in the shift towards a sustainable transport system. SSAB is Scania's main supplier of steel for its vehicles.
The new deal, a next step in the long-standing relationship, caters for radically lowered climate emissions. The 100% ambition for decarbonized deliveries is among the boldest of intentions agreed between SSAB and a customer. It moreover marks an ambitious plan within the First Movers Coalition, where Scania and SSAB are members to reduce the carbon footprint in hard-to-abate sectors.
Through this partnership, Scania and SSAB are committed to use their purchasing power to create early markets for innovative clean technologies.
