We have outlined a pathway to reach our carbon neutrality goal for our own operations.
All Finnish properties and facilities owned by Veho have operated on 100 % renewable electricity since 1.1.2019, and we are working to reach this milestone in Estonia, Sweden, and Lithuania. In the facilities where we are tenants, and not able to directly control what sort of electricity our operations consume, we work with the owners of the facilities to move towards more environmentally friendly options. In our own properties, we are investigating opportunities to expand our use of alternative and renewable heating sources.
Veho’s vehicle policy strongly supports and incentivises a shift to electric vehicles (EVs). We compensate our employees with company cars for their EV charging expenses and financially support them with purchases of home charging stations.
In the current operating environment, a completely emissions-free Veho commercial fleet is not yet possible but by using renewable diesel we can reduce emissions from these vehicles by up to 90 % compared to fossil fuel -based diesel.
