PNO and supplier Ekeri partner up to tackle carbon emissions

The transportation industry isn’t exactly a clean industry. We’re aware that we need to cut carbon emissions – fast. That’s why we made a commitment to become Net Zero by 2030. We often get asked how we plan to achieve that. While a concrete plan is under development, we do know it’s about taking action now.

So, we’ve heavily invested in measuring our carbon emissions with the help of carbon accounting software company Normative. Most of our carbon emissions – around 98% – come from our Scope 3 emissions. That’s connected to supply chain activities that happen before and after us. We identified that the trailers we purchase from our suppliers contribute the most to our environmental footprint. It has become clear to us it’s crucial to engage our suppliers – because cutting carbon emissions is a team effort.

We’re especially proud and excited about our close collaboration with Ekeri, our Finnish supplier of side-opening trailers. Ekeri has done an outstanding job at providing data to calculate emissions for a trailer they’re manufacturing for us.

The results? A clear picture of Ekeri’s carbon emissions resulting from the manufacturing of our side-opening trailer, including the materials and process steps that create the most carbon emissions.

“We at Ekeri are very proud to work together with PNO towards the same ambitious goals. Since we already reduced and compensated scope 1&2 emissions, we were ready to go on calculating the most challenging scope 3. After the smooth calculation process, we now understand our scope 3 emission better, and at Ekeri, we are ready to gear up to reduce the biggest sources of emission. Follow Ekeri and PNO to hear more about our future work together as pioneers in the transport industry.” – Daniel Asplund, Sustainability & Aftersales Manager, Ab Ekeri Oy.

We’re looking forward to continuing this fruitful partnership and diving even deeper into understanding where these emissions come from and how we can reduce them together.
