Kesko receives goods from around the world every day, and the distribution of these goods to the stores requires transportation. Keslog, the supplier of Kesko’s logistics services, drove a total of 37.9 million kilometres in 2011. This means that we transported goods 2.5 times around the world every day.
Keslog has set itself the target of reducing the carbon dioxide emissions of transport. All our contract drivers are trained in eco-driving, which reduces fuel consumption, thus reducing the load on the environment.
We aim to reduce the amount of airplane travel of our employees. We have obtained video conferencing equipment for our offices in different countries. We encourage employees to favour video conferencing over business travel.
Our company car policy recommends an emission level below 160 g CO2/km). In 2011, the average emission level of company cars was 146 g CO2/km.
