Our environmental responsibility

PostNord’s business involves various types of transport. We make targeted efforts to reduce our own environmental impact and thereby also that of our customers.

Reduced environmental impact is not only a positive contribution to society – it is also a competitive advantage for PostNord and our customers.

PostNord creates value through the efficient management and distribution of physical and digital mail items that reach the recipient in an effective manner. Most of PostNord’s business thus involves the transport of mail, goods and freight from one point to another. Carbon dioxide emissions from transport account for the lion’s share of the group’s environmental impact. Reduced consumption of fossil fuels is therefore one of PostNord’s highest priority initiatives for achieving our long-term emissions target.

PostNord’s long-term environmental goal is to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 40% during the 2009–2020 period. Emissions have been reduced by 23 %. The reduction has been achieved as a result of initiatives within a number of areas, including purchasing green electricity in more parts of the business, a higher content of biofuel in diesel and centralization of operations. The introduction of the integrated production model has already begun to contribute to the reduction.
