Corporate sustainability governance
Sustainability is on the Board of Director’s agenda at Cargotec, and the Board reviews sustainability on an annual basis. The Cargotec Leadership Team conducts bi-annual sustainability reviews and approves corporate level sustainability targets. Cargotec’s Senior Vice President, Communications is responsible for sustainability issues within the Cargotec Leadership Team.
Business area sustainability governance
To ensure that targets match business area operations, the management teams of Kalmar, Hiab and MacGregor hold a sustainability review at least bi-annually for their respective business areas, reviewing and approving possible adjustment needs of the corporate level sustainability targets.
Operational sustainability management
Operationally, sustainability is managed at both the corporate and business area level across organisational boundaries. The key responsible organisations are units working with strategy, quality, R&D, sourcing, QEHS (quality, environment, health and safety), corporate audit, HR and legal. The corporate level sustainability targets are proposed, reported on and monitored by Cargotec’s Corporate Sustainability function, and each business area has its own function responsible for coordinating its sustainability work.
The Cargotec Sustainability Council aligns and agrees on actions taken on the corporate and business area level regarding the development, implementation and follow-up of sustainability targets and policies. The Sustainability Council consists of the Corporate Sustainability function (SVP Communications and Director Sustainability) and the corporate strategy and business area management team members responsible for sustainability issues.
