The three highlight projects 2020
“Our mission is to deliver efficient transportation and energy solutions.”
All-electric urban buses in service
E-mobility is picking up speed: MAN Truck & Bus delivered the first two MAN Lion’s City E buses to Hamburg at the end of 2019. The e-bus is now on the road in many European countries. The MAN Lion’s City E is making the vision of zero-emission traffic become a reality – and is already doing so in numerous European cities. #ElectrifyingEurope: a tour of Europe.
Series production of the battery-powered urban buses was successfully launched at MAN’s Polish plant in Starachowice in October. The 12-meter solo version of Lion’s City E is coming off the assembly line and will be heading off to the Hamburg-Holstein public transportation company (VHH). Around 30% to 40% of the e-bus’ body shell alone is different to that of its conventional counterpart. On top of that, there is the electric drive train, the batteries and other high-voltage components.
Thinking ahead when it comes to climate protection
MAN is aiming to make a significant contribution to reducing CO₂ while offering its customers an efficient portfolio of products and services. With this in mind, we are continuing to enhance our Climate Strategy, developing new targets with the time horizon 2025 and 2030.
MAN is working intensively on climate-friendly drive technologies. Electric-powered commercial vehicles are being put on the road in close cooperation with cities and logistics partners. Our very first electric van, the eTGE, is series production. From 2024, we will then launch the series production of e-trucks for urban distribution transportation. In 2020, a small series of the eTGM will be shipped to European customers. The company is conducting research into various alternatives to the diesel drive for long-haul transportation.
MAN Truck & Bus is not only forging ahead vigorously with delivering great products, but also in cutting its CO2 emissions. We set ourselves the target of reducing CO2 emissions at our locations by 25 percent by 2020 – and achieved that target ahead of time in 2018. We are working on further challenging goals. Whether in products or production – success in protecting the climate is the sum of many projects, large and small. Core measures are not only measures to enhance efficiency, but also the use of renewable sources of energy for electricity and heat.
Pluralism and inclusion
MAN pursues a long-term strategic approach to pluralism and inclusion.
All managers have been given training in the subject of pluralism and inclusion since September 2020 as part of the “Skill Capture for Inclusive Leadership Labs.” The Skill Capture Labs pursue a sustainable approach and aim to enable MAN’s management to shed old mindsets through suggestions and ideas, but also through deliberate provocation. The objective is to help them identify unconscious bias and better recognize and foster abilities and perspectives in their teams.
(The sequence does not indicate any order of importance)
MAN has captured many awards. They prove how deeply corporate responsibility and sustainability are strategically entrenched at MAN, and also how intensively they are practiced, in very different subject areas. Five examples:
MAN eTGE and MAN eTGM win “European Transport Award for Sustainability 2020”
The awards are bestowed on companies and products from the commercial vehicle industry which combine economic success with social responsibility and environmental protection in a special way – and whose sustainable actions lead to additional growth and prosperity. MAN Truck & Bus captured the coveted awards in two categories: The MAN eTGM won over the jury in the “Electric truck” category and the MAN eTGE impressed in the “Vans and delivery vehicles” class.
ISS-oekom awards a C+ rating again
The environmental rating agency ISS-oekom has rewarded MAN’s efforts to create sustainable value added in the vehicle and mechanical engineering industry with a good “C+” rating and “Prime” status. This means MAN is rated among the top 17%, making it one of the industry’s most sustainable companies worldwide by the independent agency’s standards.
The good rating is also primarily due to MAN’s consistently efficient product portfolio and the successful implementation of the Climate Strategy. One particularly noteworthy point is that MAN was rated as “exceptional” in the “Health and Safety” category.
Seventh place in the Stern CR Ranking 2020
MAN Truck & Bus SE captured seventh spot out of more than 2,000 participants in the CR Ranking study conducted by the market research company Statista. The study extensively analyzes companies understanding of and performance in the area of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) internationally.
The company’s healthcare system at the Munich location is a fine example of successful preventive healthcare. Its efforts were rewarded with a seal of excellence as part of the Corporate Health Award.
Masterly care – best practices in tackling mental stress
The Nuremberg plant’s project “Mental stress risk assessment” is a shining example. MAN captured the BGHM “Crafty Fox” award for it, an accolade that acknowledges outstanding measures and constant engagement or occupational health and safety. The interdisciplinary team, comprising Health Services, Work Safety and the Works Council, has been in charge of implementing a holistic process – from planning of measures to reviewing their effectiveness – since 2016.
