For us, sustainability is nothing new. We have been around for more than 160 years, and we see that as proof of sustainable business practices.
But don't think that we are satisfied with that. The concept of sustainability can be viewed from many perspectives, and it gives us reason to constantly improve ourselves and look at ourselves in a new light.
Our sustainability work is an endless journey.

Our sustainability goals

We base our goals on the global sustainability goals that the world's countries have agreed upon.
All of them are equally important, but we have chosen to currently focus on five of the goals where we believe we can make the biggest difference and contribute to Sweden's goal achievement.
Our priority goals are:

Good Health and Well-being
Good health is a fundamental presumption for people to reach their full potential and contribute to society´s development. We aim to promote healthy lives, both for our employees and for the people in our local community.

By investing in our employees, we foster engagement and well-being, which in turn leads to better results and a positive corporate culture.

By investing in health-promoting initiatives, such as sports associations, we contribute to physical activity and inclusion.
Gender Equality
Our employees are our greatest asset and central to our ongoing development. We actively work on gender equality and non-discrimination, striving for a gender-equal organization that encourages diversity.

Our focus lies in recruitment, competence development, health and workplace environment, work-life balance, and equal pay between women and men.
Decent Work and Economic Growth
Haegerstrands has existed for more than 160 years – we think this is proof that there is a sustainability mindset in our way of running the company. Many of our customer relationships are characterized by long-term partnerships, yet we operate in a world with significant challenges. This means we must keep adjusting to the changing environment and what our customers require.

A fundamental requirement for our long-term sustainability in business is providing decent working conditions.
For us, this primarily involves a safe working environment, opportunities for personal development, and competitive terms and conditions for our employees.

In order for us to thrive and perform well together, we have established guidelines for what it means to be a Haegerstrand employee. This is a code of conduct that guides us and reminds us of the values that underpin our behavior and business principles.
Combat Climate Change
The transportation sector is one of the largest sources of greenhouse gas emissions.

By choosing sustainable modes of transportation and technologies, we can reduce our impact on the climate. The industry faces major challenges, and we actively participate in various forums to influence and monitor developments, enabling us to offer sustainable freight solutions to our customers.

We believe that one of the best ways to drive our climate efforts is to cooperate with first-class partners who have both the capacity and ambition to make a difference.
Oceans and Marine Resources
The sea holds a special place in our hearts, especially the inner sea where we live and operate – the Baltic Sea. We think it is the world's most beautiful sea, but it is also one of the most polluted.

We want to contribute to this goal by increasing knowledge about the Baltic Sea and how we can all contribute to a more sustainable use of the ocean. That's why we have chosen to sponsor the sailing competition "No Emission Race," which highlights the challenges of the Baltic Sea.
