The Native Translator is responsible for the effects of its decisions and activities that impact our environment. The purpose of this policy is to describe and set out a fundamental and common approach within TNT regarding our environmental impact, including the handling of these issues within the company.
TNT’s environmental work shall contribute towards creating a sustainable society and help ensure long-term profitability and a strong brand. TNT is aware of the global environmental issues and the company’s opportunity to make an impact, both directly and indirectly. Based on the above, our business shall be characterised by the following fundamental principles:
Opportunities and risks
Environmental aspects are always taken into account in our assessment of our business’s profitability and risks. This especially applies to all product development.
Collaboration with customers and stakeholders
By listening to our customers and other interested parties, TNT knows that these stakeholders possess a wealth of knowledge about their own business and its effect on the environment. Developments in the environmental area result from learning from each other and openly exchanging information on environmental issues, in which initiative and fresh ideas are encouraged. The company observes voluntary agreements, for example The Global Compact, the United Nations Environment Programme’s financial initiatives and the International Chamber of Commerce’s Business Charter for Sustainable Development. The company’s environmental work results in benefits to the customer and a stronger brand.
TNT strives to reduce pollution, both directly and indirectly.
Our clear and monitorable environmental goals ensure that our internal environmental work results in continuous improvements. We try to work only with electronic documents to minimise the needs for paper and wood-based materials.
Our translators and project managers work mainly from home to reduce the environmental impact of travelling and the need for large heated office space.
The company fosters its employees’ commitment and awareness. All employees realise the importance of environmental issues from both a profitability and social perspective. TNT’s environmental profile helps ensure the company is an attractive employer. A living environmental dialogue is a natural part of the day-to-day work and the environment is integrated into all skills development.
Compensation to the environment
The company compensates the environment by making contributions to MyClimate.
