Sustainability is an enormous business prospect for Cargotec
Sustainability is an enormous business prospect for Cargotec. The future growth in our business comes from increasing demands for operational efficiency, the proliferation of lifetime solutions and from increasing cargo volumes.
We serve industries that cover the majority of the world's gross domestic product (GDP). This gives us potential to enable increased welfare globally.
Offering for eco-efficiency
We can promote global eco-efficiency with our offering, as our customers - producing a large share of global GDP and welfare but also global emissions - can limit their emissions with the use of our products.
We have introduced an offering for eco-efficiency. Products within the portfolio can benefit customers’ operational, emissions or resource efficiency. In environmental industries, our products and solutions can enhance the industry efficiency.
Our strategy guides our sustainability work
Services development and digitalisation are at the core of our strategy. 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.
Cargotec is a leading provider of cargo and load handling solutions with the goal of becoming the leader in intelligent cargo handling. As a technological leader, we can shape the way goods and materials are transported globally, bringing in various sustainability standards for the whole industry.
To support an economically, environmentally and socially sustainable development, companies need to renew their operations, innovate new business models and collaborate more with each other. The needed changes will be challenging; however, we see great opportunities to help companies move towards greater sustainability, and adapt our own operations to meet the United Nations sustainable development goals (SDGs).
UN sustainable development goals are globally agreed targets that are aimed towards ending poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring prosperity for all as part of a new UN sustainable development agenda.
Although no company alone can ensure that the world will achieve the goals, they can show their support by taking small steps towards the targets with developing their operations in line with the UN goals. We firmly believe that with our ambition of being the leader in intelligent cargo handling, we are particularly impacting the six goals marked below.
The latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report highlighted the need to decrease CO2 emissions at an unforeseen pace. The IPCC report is deeply linked to the UN SDGs through climate action, industry growth and innovation. We at Cargotec have developed our strategy to support both of these actions by focusing on digitalisation and productivity, and by advocating for a more-with-less approach both internally and in our customers’ operations.
Digitalisation plays a key role in decreasing emissions in the maritime and transportation industries. It will also be a major enabler for a wider social change towards a more circular economy. In the future, data sharing, common platforms and collaboration will act as key drivers in achieving these targets and connecting industries.
Digitalisation, added with electrification of traditional diesel-driven equipment, are ways with which we help support a more sustainable logistics industry. Cargotec’s offering for eco-efficiency portfolio supports our economic growth and sets an industry example on sustainability standards.
