Companies are committing to tackle climate change by pursuing science-based measures to bring efficient technologies to market.Cargotec has been no stranger in shouting about its commitment to the United Nations Global Compact’s Business Ambition for 1.5°C, joining leading companies in a promise to pursue science-based measures to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C. “A key business driver for Cargotec is to reduce the carbon footprint of the logistics industry,” said Mika Vehviläinen, CEO of Cargotec. Cargotec said that more than 95% of its CO2 emissions occur in the value chain – meaning raw material sourcing and use-phase of the sold products. Therefore, the emission reduction target is mammoth and expands beyond its own operations.
