Konsortium E-Mutiara Bhd, one of the most successful express bus operators in Malaysia, is adopting the Scania Ecolution programme in its bid to reduce CO2 (carbon dioxide) emissions. The company’s move to reduce emissions for the betterment of the environment makes it the first company in Southeast Asia to adopt Scania’s programme.
Scania Ecolution is more than just a product or service; it is a tailor-made partnership that is designed to reduce CO2 emissions as well as reduce overall fuel consumption. By applying a suite of Scania’s total solutions, a company’s sustainability commitment also gets a boost to meet the demand of consumers today for more responsible practices that add to the constant pressures on fleet operators for just-in-time deliveries and tight profit margins.
“Scania Ecolution will facilitate the shift towards a sustainable transport system for transport companies whether it is transporting goods or people. It is a competitive industry that is increasingly focusing on sustainability,” said Scania Southeast Asia Managing Director, Marie Sjödin Enström.
“More needs to be done to lower emissions globally to reduce global warming and address climate change. Scania Ecolution is a solution on how profitability can be achieved without sacrificing sustainability. By working together, we can make it even better,” added Marie.
E-Mutiara will work with a dedicated Scania Ecolution Manager who will monitor the progress and choose from Scania’s wide range of solutions to achieve the mutually agreed emissions reduction target to achieve its sustainability goals and profitability in the long term.
The Kota Bharu-based express bus company has subscribed to Scania’s Fleet Management System, Scania Repair and Maintenance as well as Scania Driver Training and Coaching to enhance its own service offering and increase its productivity.
“E-Mutiara is truly at the forefront of change as they have always been and will continue innovate ways to provide the best experience for their customers while taking responsibility to reduce their carbon footprint,” added Marie.
“We are happy to be collaborating with Scania to achieve our mission of becoming a more sustainable business and reducing our carbon footprint. We believe that this will also be appreciated by our passengers, knowing that they are going green by choosing us for their journey,” said E-Mutiara Executive Chairman, Tuan Haji Che Ibrahim B. Che Ismail.
