Achievements

Posti’s sustainability performance receives another gold-level rating

Posti was awarded a gold-level rating by the international research company EcoVadis for its sustainability performance. With a score of 72/100, Posti ranked among the top five percent of companies in all industries worldwide.

Posti's smart transportation pilot acknowledged in PostEurop sustainability contest

PostEurop sustainability contest PostEurop gave out Coups de Coeur sustainability awards for the fifth time. Posti’s smart transportation pilot won first prize in the Society category. The jury appreciated Posti's method of combining long-term digital research with daily postal operations as well as the pilot's impact on health, safety and the environment.

Electric car fleet expanded by five new vehicles

Posti added five right-hand drive electric vans to its fleet. The electric vans are quiet and emission-free, which makes them particularly well suited for deliveries in urban areas and supports the achievement of Posti’s environmental targets.

Development areas

Low dedication index

Although the results of the employee survey improved in each category, the important indicator that is the dedication index remained low compared to the industry average. The dedication index indicates the extent to which the personnel are motivated to contribute to and willing to strive for reaching the goals of the organization.

Further improvement needed to achieve the emissions reduction target

In 2017, Posti’s total emissions relative to net sales were down 17 percent from the 2007 level. This means that further improvement is needed to achieve the target of a 30 percent reduction by 2020.

Safe work and a safe working environment for Posti employees

Serious occupational accidents leading to an absence of more than a month decreased by 21 percent from the previous year, but the LTA1 indicator of accident frequency remained high in Finland at 46. We will continue our systematic efforts to promote occupational safety and make Posti a zero-accident workplace.
