The electrical power used by Posti in Finland has been produced with 100 percent renewable energy.
Large properties such as warehouses, terminals and postal centers use about 80 per cent of all electricity. All our logistics operations in Finland are fully covered by environmental certificate. We also have an ISO 14001 compliant environmental management system in our warehouses in Russia.
Posti was among the first to join the new energy efficiency agreement period 2017-2025. The agreement is a voluntary commitment to improve energy efficiency.
Posti aims to reduce the energy consumption of its facilities by 10.5 percent during the review period 2014–2025. We are changing to LED lights and also making changes to lighting control. Lighting is responsible for nearly 60 percent of the energy consumption in Posti’s facilities.
The aim of our waste management is to minimize landfill waste and increase recoverable waste. In 2016, the recovery rate was at 99 percent (2015: 98 percent) and the recycling rate was 66 percent.
