Commitments and principles

As a company, we are bound by the following sustainability commitments and policies.


Our commitments

Science Based Targets

By committing to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), we support the Paris Climate Agreement’s goal of limiting the global temperature increase to no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius. The commitment applies to the entire company, including our Parcel Service partners throughout Finland.

UN Global Compact

In January 2023, we signed up to the UN Global Compact corporate responsibility initiative, according to which we are committed to complying with international obligations relating to working conditions, human rights, the environment and the prevention of corruption.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

We are committed to contributing to the five UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and seven sub-goals that we can influence through our sustainability programme.

Vision Zero Forum

We are involved in the Vision Zero Forum which indicates that, as a workplace, we are committed to sharing good practices with other workplaces, developing occupational safety together with management and employees, ensuring occupational health and safety as part of the effective operation of our workplace, and reporting the necessary occupational safety information to the Vision Zero Forum every year.

Ecocompass

We participate in the Ecocompass environmental system, which helps us to identify, monitor and reduce the environmental impact of our operations in our offices and terminals. We have received the Ecocompass certificate based on an audit by an external expert. Ekokompass is based on the ISO 14001 environmental standard and is owned by the the Finnish Association for Nature Conservation.

Our Ethical Code of Conduct

The Ethical Code of Conduct for Partners

Working with partners who share our values and bear their social responsibility is of paramount importance to us. We want to ensure good business practices throughout the supply chain and develop our operations in an increasingly responsible and ethical way together with our partners.
