Zemo Partnership, the public-private partnership working to accelerate a sustainable shift to lower carbon vehicles and fuels has added Tania Neech to its Partnership board

Tanya Neech, Scania (Great Britain)’s Sustainability Officer, has been appointed to the board of the multi-stakeholder Zemo Partnership, which is working to deliver on the UK’s transport decarbonisation objectives. Tanya joins the 18-strong Zemo board with three other appointees – Tim Anderson, UK Head of Transport for the Energy Saving Trust, Richard Cuerden, Director of the TRL Academy, Transport Research Laboratory, and Glenn Saint, Vice President Commercial Vehicles, Arrival.

She brings five years of experience of working with sustainability issues at Scania, during which time her work has encompassed working with both head office and dealer staff as well as external agencies in order to define and implement sustainability policies and goals spanning every aspect of the manufacturer’s truck, bus, coach and power solutions operations, and associated services.

“Our wholehearted congratulations go to Tanya on this important appointment,” said Martin Hay, Managing Director for Scania (Great Britain). “Scania is firmly committed to driving the shift towards more sustainable transport solutions, and that includes developing our own performance from a sustainability perspective – the area in which Tanya is involved. I am sure her wide-ranging experience will add significantly to the voice of the commercial industry within the Zemo Partnership, and we look forward to supporting Tanya to enable her to fulfil her role to best effect.”

Tanya commented: “Joining the board is something I am really excited about and privileged to be a part of. Scania is fully aligned with Zemo’s emission to deliver cleaner, more sustainable transport. Our Driving The Shift strategy relies on strong, solid partnerships and collaboration, which can only be delivered when we all work together. Our recent commitment to introduce a new electric product each year and our approved Science Based Targets means we are also in a great position to support the efforts of the partnership and its work programme.”
