We want to limit our climate impact by lowering carbon emissions. This is why we strive to only engage suppliers using vehicles which at least meet the Euro 5 emission standard and to collaborate with them in developing solutions that lessen our environmental impact. We use intermodal solutions and groupage shipping, and we plan our shipments in order to achieve as high a fill rate as possible for our cargo units.
We strive to reduce the energy consumption of our entire operations, both in our offices and in our warehouse facilities. This is accomplished by promoting our employees' awareness of how they can affect consumption in their day-to-day activities. It is also a standing item on the agenda of our working environment group when we discuss larger issues.
We see the current environmental legislation as a minimum requirement, and we aim to surpass the goals set by laws, ordinances, and other regulations. Our ambition is to use statistical data to follow up on our actual environmental impact, such as carbon emissions and energy consumption.
