Sustainability

The environment

Jetpak takes a conscious and considerate approach to all decisions within its business which affect the environment, either directly or indirectly. The company holds quality and environmental certification in accordance with ISO 9001/14001. Our quality and environmental policy ensures that we remain environmentally conscious, that we continuously improve our internal processes and that we listen to the requests of our customers, partners and employees. Environmental adaption is a given within Jetpak’s business operations, where senders are issued with a carbon dioxide declaration for each shipment sent. Our drivers are trained in eco-driving and fuel consumption is measured in all vehicles. We also reduce our environmental impact internally by using green energy, by holding virtual meetings to reduce our number of business trips and by driving environmentally friendly service vehicles.

The company’s goals adopted in 2018 are to increase the number of drivers trained in eco-driving, to reduce CO2 emissions by 20 per cent between 2018 and 2022 and to maintain the age of our vehicle float at between three and eight years, depending on the vehicle model. Jetpak has also begun investigating alternative vehicles such as electric cars and the possibilities of using renewable fuels in order to contribute towards sustainable development, to meet customer demands and to adapt to new legislation.

Employees

The efforts of our employees are crucial in allowing Jetpak to reach its goals for long-term profitability and competitiveness. We therefore take care to engage the right employees and to develop them and their skills. Our company culture is characterised by simplicity and engagement. Jetpak has a code of conduct and a discrimination policy in place which makes clear that the company has zero tolerance for discrimination of any kind. All of our employees have the right to be treated and judged on the basis of their skills, performance and ambitions. Nobody should be treated differently as a result of their gender, gender identity or expression, ethnic origin, religion, beliefs, disability, sexual orientation, age or any other irrelevant factors. Everyone who works at Jetpak is responsible for ensuring that this policy is followed, and managers in charge of staff have a particular duty in this regard.

An important priority for us is for our employees to feel that they can participate in the development of our business and to feel incentivised to do so. Jetpak’s employee survey follows up on our approaches to leadership, human capital and organisation

Citizenship and human rights

Jetpak strives to be a company which reminds the world around it of the importance to help integrate new arrivals, young people and those who have been left on the margins of our society for a longer time. The company follows a code of conduct which places emphasis on working towards a sustainable society. Part of this involves adopting new skills that come out on the labour market. We collaborate with the Swedish Public Employment Service, Colleges and Universities in order to take on interns within logistics, transport and procurement and to provide them with some solid experience of working life in these areas.

In 2018, Jetpak plans to adapt its code of conduct for suppliers and partners and to develop its processes for following up on suppliers. The aim of this is to reduce the risk of Jetpak inadvertently contributing to or being associated with the violation of human rights as a result of our partners failing to comply with applicable legislation and regulations concerning matters of employee and/or human rights.

Combatting corruption

Jetpak’s procurement policy regulates our representation, ensuring that it is always motivated and modest. Jetpak’s CFO is responsible for ensuring that our procurement policy is updated on a continuous basis. We prevent prohibited transactions from being authorised by ensuring that each transaction is processed and approved by two different people. We did not experience any incidents regarding our procurement policy or prohibited transactions in 2017.
