Environmental responsibility

The goal of our environmental program is to reduce emissions by 30% by 2020. Between 2007 and 2013, our carbon dioxide emissions in relation to net sales decreased by 20%, which clearly exceeds the goal. We have reduced the fuel consumption of our vehicles, and we have improved the energy efficiency of our premises by reducing our consumption of electricity and heat and purchasing 100% green electricity.

According to a sustainability report published by the International Post Corporation (IPC), companies in the postal industry have decreased their carbon dioxide emissions by a total of 19.4% over a period of five years. The replacement of vehicles has had the most significant effect on carbon dioxide emissions. The increasing number of vehicles running on alternative fuels has had the most significant effect. In 2007, the IPC set a common goal for its members to reduce the carbon dioxide emissions of the postal industry by 20% by 2020.

Environmental damage in Shushary was remediated


No significant environmental damage took place in 2013. In the serious warehouse accident in Shushary in St Petersburg in 2012, part of the shelving system collapsed. The accident damaged customer products to a significant degree, and Itella was also required to carry out environmental protection and cleaning measures. We continued to develop our environmental management and acquired the ISO 14001 certification for the Shushary warehouse.
