Metsä Tissue business Lambi is increasing the number of delivery vehicles operating on renewable fuels across its Swedish operations as it targets greenhouse gas emission reductions of 90 per cent for each cargo load transported.
The company says continuous improvement throughout the value chain is especially important for the Lambi consumer brand, and it is dedicated to enhancing people’s wellbeing and minimising the environmental impact of its operations and products throughout their entire life cycle. Lambi’s commitment extends from responsibly sourcing raw materials to efficient manufacturing using fresh wood fibres in Lambi tissue paper production – with the company highlighting the vital role of transport within sustainable value chains.
Its fleet now includes lorries running on renewable diesel (HVO), which can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90% compared to fossil diesel. The adoption of these new fuel-powered trucks enables an annual reduction of 120 tons of CO2 emissions. This figure is equivalent to a passenger car covering a distance of 700,000 kilometers or almost 18 laps around the globe.
[C]aring about the environmental is a significant aspect of our commitment.
Katariina Kukkonen, Marketing Director for the Nordics at Lambi, says: “In addition to various other environmental initiatives, caring about the environmental is a significant aspect of our commitment. This particular delivery mode is the target of our efforts in Sweden, and we are taking measures to expand the number of routes using suitable transport as capacity becomes available.
“Providing a sustainable product selection in tissue paper and showcasing sustainable development measures are important.
“The approach can help consumers contribute to a more sustainable future by opting for locally produced, sustainable products. Lambi products serve as an excellent example of this.”
