Wrist Group is moving towards GHG emissions reduction
To reduce GHG emissions from electricity, we aim to transition from non-renewable to renewable electricity in our warehouses and offices by investing in certified renewable electricity, such as solar panels.
Earlier this year, Saga Shipping, part of Wrist Group, launched several initiatives to reduce fossil fuels and reduce energy, hereunder relying on renewable energy sources. We installed 182 solar panels on top of the warehouse roof, now saving warehouse electricity expenses and reducing fossil energy.
To reduce GHG emissions from fossil fuels, we are also currently updating our company car policy to support the choice of cars with lower emissions. Thus, creating awareness about electric and hybrid cars, and moving away from conventional cars using only fossil fuels.
In 2027, 50%

In 2022, 5 electric cars and 4 plug-in hybrid cars have replaced 9 fossil fueled cars, and more electric and hybrid cars have been ordered and expected to be delivered before the end of this year.
