Sustainable trend towards cleaner transports

Core values
- The purpose of the yearly Supplier Survey is to examine our transporters´ compliance with our core values, says Daniela Jidhage, Manager Purchasing Strategy. The survey also follows up the environmental objectives and collects data for emission calculations.

This year’s Supplier Survey was carried out in February among suppliers on all main markets. From this year also South African suppliers were included. The response rate has improved to plus 95 % and so have also the data quality.

- The transport suppliers´ reports on the environmental and safety features of their vehicles, have improved a lot, Susanna Hambeson, Environmental Manager states. This makes us comfortable when calculating our CO2 emissions, which are continuing the downward trend both in Europe and globally.

Another result worth mentioning is that the share of suppliers with a defined CO2 reduction objective has increased significantly in North America and Asia Pacific.
