HUS environmental policy is coordinated by the HUS Environment Center. At HUS Logistics, we implement the HUS corporate environmental responsibility goals through our sustainability team. Our corporate environmental responsibility efforts are governed by the HUS environmental policy, the HUS environmental program and the HUS procurement strategy.
Reducing energy consumption and emissions
The HUS Logistics Centre building has an energy efficiency classification of ‘A’, with an imputed total energy consumption of about 74 kWh per sq.m per annum. The building has geothermal heating. Electricity purchased from Vantaan Energia for lighting and equipment totaled 485 MWh in 2019, 7% less than in 2018 even though both our operating volume and our personnel increased. In 2019, electricity consumption was curbed for instance by optimizing the cooling regime. We also installed solar panels on the roof of the Logistics Centre. The solar panels generate about 50 MWh of electricity per year, which is used for instance for running the geothermal heating and cooling system and for lighting.
