The Helsingborg Declaration is an initiative that means that the city, together with actors from the entire logistics chain, aims to make the Helsingborg region Europe's most fast-moving and sustainable logistics hub.
The Helsingborg Declaration is the logistics sector’s equivalent to the Paris Agreement. This is a milestone for the logistics sector’s sustainability work. For the first time, representatives for the entire chain are now agreeing on common goals and guidelines with a view to achieving climate neutrality by 2030. This is historic,” says Peter Danielsson, Mayor of Helsingborg and initiator of the Helsingborg Declaration.
Boxon has decided to join hands with several of our customers and other international and national companies as Scania, Volvo, Postnord TPL, Peab, Schenker, Skanska, Catena, Johnson & Johnson, Frigoscandia and the Port of Helsingborg. All signatories have a clear ambition to accelerate their green transition.
The focus areas of the declaration are: Fossil-free energy; Smart and efficient logistics with coordinated loading solutions; Technology and infrastructure; Packaging logistics; Circularity, reuse, recycling. This goal requires collaboration between different industries, sectors, and organizations.
"We are happy to be part of this initiative, and to collaborate with both international and local companies in the region. Transparency and cross sector partnerships are key when it comes to climate and circular innovation. Great local solutions can also be scaled globally", says Ann-Sofie Gunnarsson, CSO at Boxon.
