Sustainability

PostNord offers communication and logistics solutions to, from and within the Nordic region. Our operations include the important universal service obligation of guaranteeing postal services in Sweden and Denmark. We are also the Nordic region’s leading business communication operator and one of the region’s largest logistics operators.

Sustainable Transformation

Our business strategy is dependent on a distinct sustainability agenda. The Sustainable Development Goals guide us in how to transform our operations in a more sustainable direction. Sustainability will be taken into consideration in our activities in order to minimize risk and maximize sustainable value creation. Our goal is to strengthen our position in the market by clearly integrating sustainability into our product and services offer.

An inclusive leadership and dedicated employees are essential to the creation of new business opportunities and to improving our capacity. Sustainable operational performance and improvements has a positive effect on product quality, while it also reduces cost and minimizes the negative environmental impact from our services. Safe and secure high-quality communication and logistics solutions create value for our customers, consumers, employees, suppliers and other stakeholders.

Our goals

Stakeholders and dialogue

PostNord makes it possible for businesses and private individuals to do business and communicate with each other every day. PostNord fills an important role in the business community and society in the Nordic countries by making communication and the transportation of goods possible to everyone, every day.

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.

Our social responsibility

With about 7,000 distribution points, 30,000 co-workers and an extensive fleet of vehicles, PostNord plays a major role in key social functions in the Nordic region. We have universal service obligations in Sweden and Denmark to deliver mail and mail items to all households and businesses.

Our responsibility as employer

The capacity of PostNord managers to lead during change, in combination with employee commitment, is crucial to the success of the structural changes that are underway – and for PostNord’s long-term success.

Community involvement and sponsoring

The sponsorship strategy is joint Nordic, while the execution is national. Through PostNord’s partnerships, partners can help the target groups achieve their dreams and goals.

Responsible procurement

Each year PostNord purchases goods and services for billions of SEK from a large number of suppliers. The majority of these purchases involve transport and services.

Certificates

To ensure a uniform way to carry out the strategic direction across the whole organisation, common ways of working are established at Group level.
