Sustainability

Sustainability Report

The Sustainability Report, that is a part of the Annual report, is reported according to Global Reporting Initiatives guidelines G4.

Our goal is to strengthen our position in the market by clearly integrating sustainability into our product and services offer. “Leading in sustainability” is therefore one of our strategic priorities.

It means that our operations will contribute to sustainable development and that sustainability will be taken into consideration in all our activity. 

Our role

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.

Our responsibility

PostNord’s business is built on transports, and we work on a continuous basis to reduce our impact on the environment. When we use less fuel we reduce our costs and strengthen our competitiveness – while also reducing our environmental impact.
PostNord’s proactive work with quality issues creates value for our customers, owners and other stakeholders. Good leadership and dedicated employees are essential to the creation of new business opportunities and to improving our capacity to continue delivering high-quality communication and logistics solutions.
To create value for our owners and maintain the confidence of all of our stakeholders, we need to act responsibly and be a good and reliable business partner. We support and run our operations in accordance with the corporate responsibility principles of the UN Global Compact and OECD guidelines for multinational companies.

Our goals

PostNord’s business is governed based on financial and non-financial targets that cover our financial-, environmental- and social responsibility.
Our overall goal for our sustainability work is to create long-term value for our customers, owners and other stakeholders while ensuring the fulfilment of the group’s universal service obligations.

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 uniform and integrated quality work throughout the Group, we have certified our integrated business management system.
