Environmentally impacting activities in our operations are mainly linked to energy use, transport and business travel, handling of hazardous waste and waste fractions that are not recycled as well as chemical handling. These activities contribute to increased pollution and thus a negative climate impact. To reduce our environmental impact from these activities, we work preventively with training of our employees together with clear and documented routines in our internal guidelines. 16 I.A.

Reported environmental aspects are linked to the vehicle's various life cycle stages as well as functions and activities required to run our business. Calculations of environmental impact can take place in many different ways. Within the Hedin Bil Group, we have chosen to use the environmental indicator climate impact, which describes the impact of socalled greenhouse gases on the earth's climate in kilograms of carbon dioxide equivalents, kg CO₂-eq. Our focus is currently on the areas described in this sustainability report."
