Where We Are Going
Corrective action is of utmost importance for Samskip. It enables problem resolution, enhances customer satisfaction, improves operational efficiency, mitigates risks, and ensures compliance with regulations and our standards from suppliers. By implementing practical corrective actions, we can achieve a robust and resilient supply chain that focuses on our mission of sustainable service delivery.
Measuring the performance of our top suppliers was the first step in expanding impact outside of our direct span of control. We are now working on defining roadmaps to take these in collaboration with our suppliers. As part of Samskip’s dedication to pioneering in our industry, we focus on sharing best practices and working with our partners to improve the overall sustainability agenda. After all, by working together, we are all winning together.

We are not stopping here. Our goal for 2023 is to send the questionnaire to our top 100 suppliers (accounting for 80% of our total spend) and continue widening our ability to address improvement areas throughout our supply chain.
Scope 3 reduction
Last but not least is our mission to reduce our Scope 3 emissions. Scope 3 emissions are indirect emissions that result from a company's activities but occur outside of its direct control, such as emissions from producing raw materials or using a company's products. These emissions can significantly impact the environment
As a responsible player in the multimodal transportation industry, we are fully aware of our share of responsibility regarding our customers' Scope 3 emissions. But we must also consider the consequences of our indirect activities, both upstream and downstream, in our value chain. Being in the multimodal transportation industry, we know we are responsible for many of our customers' Scope 3 emissions.
At Samskip, we are taking action to collaborate with our value chain to reduce our indirect CO2e emissions. We are constantly striving to make a tangible impact, working tirelessly to protect our planet for future generations:
Employee commuting: 20+ electric car charging stations are available globally to encourage employees to commute with electric or hybrid vehicles.
Coupled with this, Samskip offers additional allowance for employees choosing for an electric car.
As our emphasis remains on overall reductions, Samskip communicates on and facilitates the choice to cycle, take public transport, or carpool when possible.
Data reliability is an important topic when measuring Scope 3 emissions. Being aware of this, Samskip is collaborating with its suppliers and various industry associations to gather, calculate, and report its Scope 3 emissions.
