Our financial responsibility

A long-term, stable and profitable business allows us to meet and exceed demands for environmental compatibility and social responsibility. Similarly, acting in an environmentally sound and socially responsible manner strengthens our competitiveness.

Financial profitability also allows us to distribute dividends to our owners (the Danish and Swedish States), make investments in society, fund employee salaries and pensions, and pay taxes.

Our business is affected by the structural market changes caused by increased digitization and reduced mail volumes. Our strategy is focused on repositioning PostNord as a more balanced logistics company, and we intend to implement structural changes efficiently and responsibly with respect to our employees while maintaining high quality for our customers.
