Under an AGC, drivers automatically qualify as long as they are part of the Scania Ecolution partnerships and drive the specific vehicles under the programme. The vehicles they drive are marked with a Scania Ecolution sticker and the drivers are provided a t-shirt with an AGD Qualifier Badge. Scania_Starrtrek Carriers

To win, a good driver’s driving must result in the best percentage of kilometre per litre improvement throughout the duration. This is tracked using Scania’s Fleet Management System. The 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will then be presented a certificate and a list of Scania premium prizes. The driver who drives most consistently in a safe, fuel-efficient, and environmentally friendly way will also receive the Champion Jacket with AGD Champion Badge. Consequently, the companies where the winners work will receive service vouchers worth RM5,000, RM3,000 and RM1,000 respectively.

Over 478 Scania vehicles from more than 42 customers in Malaysia are part of the Scania Ecolution programme. These ‘good companies’ and ‘good drivers’ are also part of the global effort to achieve their ESG and Science Based Targets together with Scania.

17070-161Scania had committed towards minimising emissions from its own products and operations. This includes cutting CO2 emissions by 20% from its land transport per transported tonne by 2025 (using 2015 as a baseline), and by 50% from Scania’s own operations. As an Ecolution partner with Scania, the good company and its drivers also play a part in the journey towards reducing CO2 emissions in line with the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) drawn at the Paris Agreement in 2015.

“The Scania Ecolution partnership has managed to significantly lower fuel consumption of Starrtrek’s Scania fleet and reduced CO2 emissions by 704,610 kg in the period of 2021/2022. That is equivalent to planting approximately 10,570 trees. This achievement helps us work towards meeting our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) goals.” stated Muhammad Rifaie, Senior Operation Executive of Starrtrek Carriers.
