Towards zero emissions – Zero Carbon 2030
We are already 100% carbon neutral, but that is not enough for us: our ambitious goal with our parent company, Posti, is to push our own emissions to zero by 2030. In addition to minimizing our own footprint, we want to use our expertise to improve things.

The road to zero emissions requires a lot of concrete actions. Such as our under-construction warehouse building in Sipoo: Energy efficiency and carbon dioxide emissions are already taken into account in the building’s material choices. We are investing EUR 2 million in green energy solutions, such as geothermal solutions, solar energy and the building’s intelligent building technology that controls and optimizes heating and ventilation.
