Sustainability at Posti


Posti is a company that is almost 400 years old, and sustainability has always been part of our DNA. For example, we have been working for the environment for a long time: we started electric cars in the 80s and started our first environmental program in the late 90s. 

Today, sustainability is a key part of our strategy, our values, and the purpose: responsibly delivering what matters to you – on your terms. To continue to transport things sustainably also in the future, we need to operate without emissions and ensure that people are feeling well. That is why the two cornerstones of our sustainability program are the environment and the people. 

We are committed to reducing our own emissions to zero and transporting fossil-free by 2030. All of our emissions should be in net-zero by 2040. The Science Based Targets initiative has approved Posti's goals. Our own emissions are, indeed, declining: our total emissions decreased by 17.4% and our own emissions (Scope 1 and 2) were reduced by 16.1% when compared to the previous year.

Our goal is zero-emission logistics, and we already transport, for example, more than 10 million packages a year completely fossil-free. Last year we drove over 20 million kilometers fossil-free by electricity and renewables. In heavy traffic, we have the largest fleet of trucks using biogas in Finland, over 30 of them. We had over 300 electric vans at the end of 2023. All the electricity we use is fossil-free.   

Our sustainability work is among the best globally: EcoVadis, the world's leading corporate sustainability assessment organization, ranked Posti again at the highest possible platinum level in 2023 – for the third successive year.
