Adam Leishman presented at the Scania Sustainable Transport Forum in Stockholm, which gathered industry and political decision-makers to chart the pathway to achieving carbon-free transport by 2050, in keeping with the Paris Agreement. Having previously managed over 1,000 vehicles internationally, including the world’s second-largest fleet of hydrogen buses, in addition to fully electric, hybrid and Euro VI buses, Adam demonstrated that adopting an innovative approach towards delivering transportation is key for creating a sustainable future.

Additionally, as guest of honour and key note speaker for Scania’s Annual Management Conference, Adam set out his vision for working with forward-looking vehicle and technology manufacturers, partnering to deliver sustainable public transportation in the world’s top cities.

“Scania is excited to work closely with Ascendal to revolutionise the public transport industry and to help unlock the potential of cities. I’m personally really excited about the emergence of Ascendal and look forward to working closely with Adam as I am truly excited about what we can achieve together.” – Henrik Henriksen, CEO Scania
