2021 Slovenia - Pošta Slovenije, d.o.o.
First electric delivery van and first solar power plant
The Pošta Slovenije’s Group’s Energy Efficiency Strategy until 2025 continues to successfully reduce the group’s environmental footprint.
The proportion of e-vehicles increased from 4.9% in 2019 to 7.7% in 2020 (adding 105 new e-vehicles to the existing fleet). Apart from the new light e-vehicles (ULDV) that increasingly replaced the classic two-wheeled motorcycles, especially for letter deliveries in city centres, the first electric delivery van was introduced. Compared to 2019, final energy consumption decreased by 4,064,660 kWh (8%) with a reduction of 1,361 m³ (4%) in water consumption and 193 m³ in rainwater consumption. Green energy from renewable energy sources dominated energy supply at 62% with the first solar power plant installed at the Celje Hub resulting in up to 75% electric energy savings. The amount of waste turned over to authorised waste management companies was 2 102 tons, of which 74 tons of plastic packaging foil, 294 tons of paper and cardboard packaging, 286 tons of wood pallets. Additionally, 923 tons of wastepaper were sold on the market.
RESULTS AND IMPACT
It resulted in further electrification of delivery fleet that improved work conditions (decreased sick leave by 3%) and faster deliveries, decreased energy consumption and improved waste management (reduced amount of waste packaging container transports, decreased transport costs).
