Fenno Road Ltd Participates in Sustainability Efforts

FENNOROAD / NEWS

The planning of a sustainability program for Fenno Road Ltd is a comprehensive process, representing a crucial step towards more sustainable and responsible business practices. The long-term program, developed in collaboration with customers and carriers, is a crucial step towards more sustainable and responsible business practices. It will consider a customer-centric approach, as well as the roles of carriers, practical perspectives, and participation.

“We are already implementing many aspects of the future sustainability plan, but it’s essential to deepen and examine these as a standalone entity,” says Niko Hiukka, CEO of Fenno Road Ltd.

The goal is to define concrete and measurable actions that meet the needs and expectations of all involved parties, ensuring alignment with the company’s objectives and providing customers with the best possible experience of responsible transport services.

Customers Seek a Responsible Partner

The needs and expectations of customers play a crucial role in the development of the sustainability program. Fenno Road Ltd aims to continue offering a partnership that provides reliable and sustainable transport services while considering environmental and social aspects.

“Currently, we focus on waste recycling, fuel choices, renewable energy, employer and economic responsibility, and ethical business practices. Questions from customers regarding ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) sustainability are almost daily occurrences,” Hiukka notes.

Significant Role of Carriers

Constructive discussions with carriers, emphasizing their active participation in the program’s planning, have been initiated. Their active involvement is crucial, providing valuable insights into the practical integration of sustainability issues into daily operations and customer satisfaction.

A Responsible Future in the Transport Sector – Challenges in Timing and Emission Reporting?

ESG sustainability largely complies with Finnish transport industry laws and regulations, following similar patterns in economic, social, and ethical responsibilities. However, there is room for refinement in environmental matters, particularly, concerning fuel choices and waste recycling.

“Sustainability matters are becoming genuine actions, no longer just superficial values. In the current market, customers exert pressure, creating a need for sustainable development in energy infrastructure, among other things,” Hiukka emphasizes.

Hiukka refers to how technology responds to demand, especially within heavy-duty equipment. This situation may foster the advancement of alternative fuel and energy solutions, requiring the transport industry, as well as equipment and energy suppliers, to evolve.

Calculation principles and data management for emission reporting will be critical in future competition. ‘I hope that emission reports would be comparable from the customer’s perspective; this would require them to be calculated on the same principles,” reflects Hiukka.
