Customer Case – Maritech Sustainability Reporting

 

“The new report will show us the effect of our measures, and will make it a lot easier to identify which measures gives the best effect,” says Logistics Director Eirik Flo.

Since August, Coast Seafood and their subsidiary, Agile Logistics, have worked closely with Maritech to implement their new sustainability reporting. The reporting itself is set to start on January 1, 2024.

“We are satisfied. The reporting solution works well and it has been a good project,” Flo continues.

“Since we use Maritech software for both our logistics and seafood operations, we chose Maritech Sustainability Reporting too. All the transport- and sales-related data are already in the other systems. Additionally, we got the opportunity to calculate environmental data related to production. Thus, we cover the most critical areas where we have emissions due to both our production and transportation.”

Routes, vehicle types and cargo estimates

“For us, a crucial part of the process has been the understanding of where we are today. Once that foundation is established, it becomes easier to define KPIs that move our environmental footprint in the right direction. Then we need reports that show the effect of what we do.

Whether we send more fish and less packaging or choose more CO2 friendly transport, it must be reflected in the reports. And now it does. I would especially like to thank Kristoffer at Maritech for helping us here, he has done a great job.”

Flo explains that they have designed a detailed calculation of transport routes, vehicle types, and cargo to create the best possible tool capable of capturing data showing the effects of environmental measures.

“We know that anything measurable creates greater engagement in the organization, thereby increasing the execution power.”

Valuable results and learning

“It’s challenging to work on sustainability measures if you don’t see improvements. We have achieved that with the new reporting,” he continues.

“The journey has been a bit more complex than we thought — you really need to understand logistics to recreate real numbers in the models. You must be very careful about the assumptions you enter to get the right emission figures. There are many pitfalls, so it has been a demanding exercise. But now I hope that we have obtained a valuable and accurate tool.

Creating emissions reporting that is good enough and accurate enough is not straightforward. However, it brings a lot of value when you work through it. And you learn a lot about sustainability data along the way. “
