Swedish Leadership on Sustainable Development (SLSD)

Cities placing increasingly high demands on transport solutions to be efficient, have high capacity and have low CO2-impact, is one of the key drivers of change. An end-to-end approach is required with regards to infrastructure and fuel in cities, taking into account the specific but diverse transport assignments and needs. ABC, Activity Based City, is a project where Scania is partnering with Skanska, MTR and WSP, four companies with experience from sustainable and innovative city building, to collaborate and show how future cities might look like to meet the growing challenges that cities are facing.
