Climate change is a global issue. Posti’s industry is very large, and the company wants to contribute to mitigating climate change while serving as an example of sustainability to others. Using Posti Green products allows customers to reduce the carbon dioxide emissions of their supply chain processes and communicate the environmental responsibility of their operations to their customers.
Posti Green is part of our environmental program which aims to cut carbon dioxide emissions by 30% by 2020 (compared with 2007, in relation to net sales). As part of Posti’s environmental program, the carbon dioxide emissions arising from operations are actively reduced by route optimization, the efficient combination of deliveries, and using an ecological driving style.
The remaining emissions are neutralized through participation in climate projects. In practice, if transporting a letter produces 20 grams of carbon dioxide, or transporting a parcel produces approximately 900 grams, we use certified climate projects to ensure that an equal amount of emissions is reduced somewhere else.
In contract services Posti Green is visible as part of the payment indication marking. In Posti’s vehicles there is a marking stating “Climate-friendly delivery”.
The product-specific Posti Green calculation process and customer reporting was verified by a third party in summer 2016.
