Sustainability – our contribution
Sustainability is an important part of our daily work. Our vision is to make a contribution towards an environment which we can be proud to leave in the hands of the next generation.
Carco fully believes in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), and as a way to contribute to the fulfillment of these goals, we have aligned our own sustainability goals towards the SDG’s, specifying relevant targets for our business. We believe it is a powerful tool for improvement, to use the SDG’s in setting our sustainability targets.
As a partner to several big automotive companies we can make an impact both in big and small contexts. We are of course committed to do what we can internally in Carco to contribute towards a sustainable globe, for example by recycling and choosing sustainable products, driving electrical cars and raising money for charity.
However, the major impact we make is by influencing and guiding our partners strategically in research for and implementation of sustainable materials, production and logistics. We are a learning organization, dedicated to being up to speed with new research and development and we are working closely with OEM’s to understand their current and future sustainability demands and KPI’s and therefore we have the possibility to guide our partners in an efficient and successful way. We can also inspire OEM’s in new findings and trends within our partner organizations. The Carco contribution to the partnering between OEM’s and sub-suppliers in the sustainability missions results in a win-win-win, for the OEMs, our partners and the environment.
Carco SDG Matrix
The SDG matrix visualizes Carco’s sustainability targets and where we see that we can make an impact towards the UN goals. From 2020 we will prepare a sustainability report every six months where our sustainability work is evaluated towards our missions and what we have achieved during the last six months. In June 2020 you will find the first report posted here.
It is an unavoidable part of our work to travel to our partners and OEM’s when needed. However, as the link between OEM’s and sub-suppliers, our traveling means substantially decreased travels for our partners. We are on site in Sweden to assist on a daily basis towards OEM’s in most commercial matters and therefore our partners minimize their own travels from all around the world to the OEM’s in Sweden. The total carbon footprint is therefore considerably reduced by our engagement.
