In cooperation with us and Neste, international food company Paulig is significantly reducing its greenhouse gas emissions from logistics in the Vuosaari port area. We used Neste MY renewable diesel in our tractors, the terminal tractors that transport Paulig's cargo from the Port of Vuosaari to Paulig's warehouse.
This represents a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in Paulig's logistics, as Neste MY renewable diesel has up to 90% lower greenhouse gas emissions over the life cycle of the fuel compared to fossil diesel*, which means an annual saving of 51 tons of in-use emissions.
"Our climate targets are endorsed by the Science Based Targets initiative. We aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from our own operations by 80% and from the value chain by 50% by 2030. On the logistics side, Paulig aims to reduce emissions by 25% by 2025. As Paulig's logistics is exclusively partner-driven, this requires cooperation with like-minded players like Transval," says Thomas Panteli, Vice President Supply Chain and Procurement at Paulig Group.
Transval has been Paulig's main logistics partner at the Vuosaari roastery since 2014. Transval has three pull masters responsible for the logistics of Paulig's green coffee. All coffee beans roasted in Vuosaari come via this route.
"For us at Transval, sustainability is seen in concrete, measurable actions. Transval's services are already 100% carbon neutral, but our ambition is to push our own emissions to zero by 2030. Switching to renewable fuels is a quick way to reduce carbon emissions from logistics. We are very proud both as employees and as a company that together with our long-standing customer Paulig and Neste we are able to make life on earth a little better," says Harri Petjala, Director of Logistics Services at Transval.
Neste, a provider of renewable diesel produced from 100% renewable raw materials, considers the partnerships equally important.
"In addition to reducing our own carbon footprint, our climate goal is to reduce our customers' greenhouse gas emissions. It's great to work with Paulig and Transval to achieve these goals, and I'm glad to see that we share the same approach to sustainability and similar values. It is by taking concrete steps together that we will move towards a carbon neutral future," says Heidi Peltonen, responsible for responsible partnerships at Neste.
PAULIG is a family-owned food company that creates a new, sustainable food culture that is good for people and the planet. Paulig's goal is to be a sustainability leader in its sector and to reduce its own greenhouse gas emissions by 80% and the greenhouse gas emissions of its value chain by 50% by 2030 compared to 2018 levels. As part of this target, Paulig will reduce logistics emissions by 25%. 100% of Paulig's coffee is sourced from certified responsible sources and the Vuosaari roastery is already carbon neutral.
* The methodology used to calculate life cycle emissions and emission reductions is in line with the EU Renewable Energy Directive (2009/28/EC).
