Panalpina has published its first integrated management report, summarizing the company’s activities during 2016 in terms of business performance as well as sustainability.
The Panalpina Integrated Management Report 2016 gives an overview of the company’s strategy and business model, the performance of its regions and products, and its approach to sustainability management. The Panalpina Corporate Sustainability Report, which was published as a separate document for the last three years, is now fully incorporated into the management report.
The report includes the methods Panalpina used in 2016 to engage with its stakeholders and to assess its impacts on the environment and the communities where it operates. Prepared in accordance with Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Guidelines, the report demonstrates Panalpina’s comprehensive approach to analyzing its activities and impacts and evaluating how sustainability relates to its strategy.
As part of a global effort to mitigate climate change, Panalpina established science-based emissions targets for the coming years, and at the end of 2016, Panalpina was one of 32 international companies to have these goals approved by the Science Based Targets initiative. Panalpina also decided in 2016 to support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and to assess the impacts that its sustainability programs have towards six of those goals.
During the year, Panalpina continued its commitment to reducing its environmental impact, with a focus on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions; these were reduced by 7% from 2015 levels. Total energy use decreased by 12%, while the use of paper decreased by 16% due to Panalpina’s continued deployment of paperless processes. And as a demonstration of community engagement, employees organized over 400 charitable and environmental activities during Panalpina’s Global Sustainable Action Week.
