Sustainability

We strive to be the sustainability challenger in our industry

En grupp glada kollegor går och samtalar utanför en konferenslokal. Kvinnan i förgrunden bär en beige blus och svarta byxor och ser åt sidan mot en skäggig man i vit t-shirt och ljusblå byxor. En annan man i en blå kavaj och skjorta gestikulerar med handen som om han berättar något, med ett leende på läpparna. Bakgrunden visar en byggnads entré med modern arkitektur och hängande ljuskronor.

Our goal

By 2027, we will be one of the most sustainable logistics options on the market

This strategic decision will impact not only our core operations and services but also significantly reduce the environmental impact of our logistics operations. Furthermore, it will lead to investments in renewable energy and strengthen our focus on social responsibility.

How do we get there?

Our sustainability efforts are structured around the ESG dimensions: Environment, Social sustainability & Governance. In addition, we also aim to invest in renewable energy and projects that drive our society and industry in a more sustainable direction.

Together, these efforts form our five pillars: environmental sustainability, social sustainability, governance, social responsibility, and investments. These pillars constitute the foundation of our commitment to a sustainable future in every aspect of our business.

Our focus on environmental sustainability

Our commitment to the environment is at the forefront of our operations, where we actively strive to reduce CO2 emissions. Through monitoring emissions, evaluating suppliers, offering carbon reductions, improving load efficiency, and embracing more sustainable shipping fleets, we are dedicated to reducing our environmental footprint.

Our focus on social sustainability

As an employer we strive to maintain a sound and inclusive work environment. We focus on achieving a balanced gender mix within our organisation and management. To keep track of our employees’ satisfaction of working within the group is also important to us. For us, it is crucial to maintain a workplace where all individuals are treated equally.
