Transport and emissions from vehicles represent approximately 90 percent of our carbon-dioxide emissions in Finland. As the largest transport and delivery company in the country, we play an important role in the development of environmentally friendly and energy-efficient transport operations.
We improve the environmental efficiency of transport operations primarily by planning routes efficiently, ensuring a high utilization rate, combining deliveries, and driving in an environmentally responsible manner.
Driving style monitoring
Since 2014, all of our delivery vehicles in Finland have driving style monitoring devices. The driving habit monitoring devices help to reduce fuel consumption and drive down carbon-dioxide emissions. What’s more, it will be possible to set and monitor regional targets for both consumption and emissions.
Cutting emissions with alternative vehicles, biofuels, and electricity
We use renewable diesel in all of our last mile packet delivery vans, we reach 38 % of households in Finland using electricity in postal services and 10 of our recent LBG trucks runs totally without emissions.
We have implemented idling-free areas outside post centers, terminals and warehouses. Entrances are equipped with signs 'idling not allowed'. This applies to all drivers, employees and visitors.
Environmentally friendly subcontracting
In tendering processes for subcontractors, we use an environmental point system observing the vehicles' European emission classes. We require that our partners' vehicles be at least of the Euro V class.
When acquiring transport services, we favor transportation companies who have signed the energy efficiency contract for the transportation sector and taken measures accordingly.
Company cars with lower emissions
For limited benefit company cars the maximum carbon emission level is 150 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer. New company cars, with a maximum emissions level of 100 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer, are given a monthly EUR 100 deduction from the vehicle's taxation value.
