FREJA is very conscious of the inherent environmental impact of our core business. The transport sector is second only to the energy sector in CO2 emissions per year, with road transport as the main contributor to transport-related greenhouse gas emissions, and with considerable challenges in terms of introducing circular economy within our trade. Nonetheless, we are also acutely aware of the key role the transport sector plays as a contributor to trade, employment and economic growth, nationally as well as globally. For this reason, it is extra important for us to take social responsibility and do our best to reduce and minimize the daily environmental impact that moving goods from A to B inevitably causes.
“Decency and mutual respect are core values at FREJA to the extent that we do not think about it in the way we act, but it has just become an integrated part of who we are. With these and the eight FREJAN values as our base (flexibility, result-orientation, engagement, just-in-time, attention, network, innovation, and trust) we would like to let it be known that we map our activities against the UN Sustainable Development Goals to underline this commitment”, says FREJA’s Group CEO, Ulrik Rasmussen.
Our foundation is decency in business and reduced environmental impact, strong focus on the well-being of our people, and continued innovation to benefit the people as well as our planet. Goals 3, 8, and 9 form our primary focus. We offer quality training to staff, we welcome more staff at all levels, we seek to do our part to increase responsible production, and we work in close cooperation with partners to reach our targets.
Goals 4, 5, 12 and 17 are our secondary focus. The goals do not change the substance of our endeavor, but they are an important joint framework that unites and articulates the efforts we make in cooperation with our partners and clients.
FREJA has a yearlong commitment with partners to the development of IT solutions to optimize transportation and reduce emissions. We measure empty haulage mileage and strive to constantly reduce it, load cargo intelligently and combine heavy and voluminous loads to maximize efficiency. FREJA proactively seeks out partners with potential for optimization, lean solutions, ultimately enabling prosperity and economic growth decoupled from environmental degradation.
