Vision and strategy refined: a million tonne CO2 emission reduction in the value chain
We announced in April our refined strategy and vision. Breakthrough objectives are sustainability and profitable growth. Our vision is to become the global leader in sustainable cargo flow. In concrete terms, Cargotec aims to reduce the CO2 emissions of its value chain by 1 million tons by 2024.
Strategy progress is measured by financial reporting, leadership index, eco portfolio share of sales and, in the future, CO2 emission reduction and the net promoter score as well.
Cargotec has set an ambitious climate target and climate is an integral part of Cargotec's strategy. In a recent video on Cargotec's Youtube channel, Päivi Koivisto, Vice President, Sustainability, tells more about Cargotec's view on sustainability.
