Sustainability is an enormous business prospect for Cargotec. We have considerable potential to enable increased welfare globally while serving industries that cover the majority of the world's gross domestic product (GDP). We also feel great responsibility to drive eco-efficiency, as these industries produce a large share of global emissions.
In terms of emissions, sea freight transport is by far the most efficient transport mode. There is, however, still vast potential to improve its eco-efficiency. The largest future growth in our business will come not only from increased cargo volumes, but also from greater efficiency and life-time solutions.
As a global forerunner, we can shape the industry by driving higher sustainability standards and promoting the circular economy. Digitalisation presents optimisation opportunities, which we believe will be vital in increasing eco-efficiency. In our expanding service business, the new business models have been built according to the principles of the circular economy. Our goal is to be the leader in intelligent cargo handling; this ambition also drives our sustainability targets.
