Flashback: Community Leadership Award

The Community Leadership Award (sponsored by Moreton Hire) recognises HVIA Members which have engaged positively with the community.

This engagement can be direct, whereby the member may have undertaken community engagement, implemented ongoing stakeholder relations, been engaged with education, training or open days or been involved in some other activity (such as in-kind support for a charity) which highlights the proactivity of the heavy vehicle industry.

The engagement may also be indirect, whereby the community gains a benefit from a new innovation which improves road safety, vehicle noise or emissions.

The award is in place to recognise the importance of being a community leader and demonstrating excellent corporate responsibility.

The 2021 award was presented to Scania Australia for their Sustainable Products and Operations.

Nominations for the 2022 HVIA National Awards are now extended until Friday 9 September 2022.

Scania believes a sustainable business depends on adopting a more circular economic model, maximising the use of existing resources and minimising waste throughout the value chain.

Scania’s company-owned sales and service branch at Prestons NSW, began their sustainability project in 2019 to enhance environmental standards, demonstrate innovation and further refine daily operations.

Key focus areas include reducing landfill, saving water, and reducing electricity and gas usage. The results have been commendable:

“To date, we have upgraded to LED lighting, installed sensor lights and window tinting, reviewed our consumables, increased recycling/recovery options, implemented waste separation stations, identified behavioural improvements, and cleaned and redirected our underground stormwater tank to supply our wash-bays.”
