    I’m very happy that already today the large-fleet owners of Finland and Sweden see the benefits of LNG and LBG in road transport. If a company with 16 HDVs switched from conventional fuels to gas, this would mean significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions as the annual emissions of one HDV are equal to those of 40–50 passenger cars. I strongly recommend that also small-fleet owners consider making the switch. This would be a great solution for hauling companies to stand out in a highly competitive logistics market
    says Jukka Metsälä, Vice President, Traffic, Gasum
    We’re taking determined steps in building a comprehensive filling station network in the Nordics. We're aiming to build around 20 filling stations for HDVs in Sweden and Finland by the end of the year and to build a total of 50 new filling stations in the Nordics by the early 2020s. This will increase the availability of gas and will allow even more fleet owners to choose low-emission LNG and LBG as a fuel and, at the same time, make significant fuel cost saving
    says Mikael Antonsson, Director, Traffic, Gasum Sweden
    We aim to introduce a lower-emission fleet for transport at Kuusakoski. The new vehicle has given us valuable information about a gas-fueled transport fleet. We intend to use this information when buying new vehicles
    says Krister Heinonen, Vice President, Logistics at Kuusakoski
    We are committed to developing the Nordic gas filling station network. We aim to improve possibilities to fill up with gas and to make it easier for companies to choose environmentally friendlier alternatives. Building a carbon-neutral society requires determined work on the availability of cleaner energy solutions
    says Jani Arala, Senior Sales Manager, Traffic, Gasum
    Drivers have commended the functionality of gas-fueled vehicles and customers have been delighted with the increase in greener alternatives. We consider it important to help our customers to reach their own targets by providing a new type of environmentally friendlier transport fleet
    says Ossi Tiilikainen, CEO, K&O Tiilikainen
    ”Our financial performance was in line with our expectations during the reporting period. Our revenue totaled €838.8 million (€827.4 million) and our operating profit for the period under review was €86.3 million.
    Johanna Lamminen, CEO, Gasum
    We have continued preparations for the opening up of the gas market and together with customers and stakeholders have been coordinating regulatory work relating to the Natural Gas Market Act since back in 2017.
    Johanna Lamminen, CEO, Gasum
    LNG was the natural choice for us since it meets existing and future emissions targets. Our customers are increasingly interested in cutting emissions in transport and require more environmentally friendly alternatives. We want to impact the environment through our own operations and the easiest way to do this is to change the transport fleet.
    says Jarmo Halonen, COO, NCS Finland.
    Climate issues are important to us and we wanted to do our own bit to help. Driving with LNG has gone really smoothly. In the long run, we’re also clocking up significant savings in fuel costs compared to diesel-fueled vehicles. We’re definitely considering acquiring more LNG-fueled vehicles.
    says Harri Nummela, Logistics manager, Pinecape
    In long-distance transport you can drive as far as 1,000 kilometers on a tankful of natural gas and fuel costs are lower than for diesel. Nevertheless, there’s no need to compromise whatsoever on performance and torsion in a Volvo FH LNG-fueled truck when compared to a similar diesel-fueled vehicle. Demand for LNG-fueled trucks is constantly growing.
    says Reino Manninen, Sales Director, Volvo Trucks
    Demand for cleaner fuels is growing rapidly in the transport and logistics industry. We and our partners are focusing on developing the gas infrastructure and network of filling stations across the Nordic countries. Particularly for companies in this sector, liquefied natural gas (LNG) and liquefied biogas (LBG) are essential in the transition towards a carbon-neutral future. At the same time, they also result in significant savings in fuel costs.
    says Jani Arala, Senior Sales Manager, Gasum
    Customer wishes and a desire to reduce our carbon footprint influenced our decision. Expansion of the filling station network makes it easier to use gas and adds to security of supply. Based on our experience, we can recommend the use of gas-fueled tractor units to all transport companies
    says Marko Järvimäki, entrepreneur
    Concern for the environment is everyone’s responsibility and we want to be a sustainability leader in the Nordic countries. We have set ourselves the goal of cutting the entire PostNord Group’s carbon dioxide emissions by 40% by 2020 compared with the 2009 level
    says Johanna Starck CEO, PostNord Oy
    Gasum offers its customers cleaner energy. We also want to show the direct and indirect impacts of our operations through what we do. A responsible financing strategy is an important part of our economic responsibility.
    Jonas Bergroth, Treasury Manager, Gasum
    Gasum’s strategy is to build the Nordic gas ecosystem by expanding the gas markets. In our responsibility program we have committed to act to curbing climate change and to promote the transition to a low-carbon society.
    Elina Saarivuori, Sustainability Manager, Gasum
    Together with our partners, we are promoting development towards a carbon-neutral future both on land and at sea.
    Olga Väisänen, VP, Communications, Gasum
    The growing gas filling station network offers more and more consumers and businesses the opportunity to reduce their transport emissions. I believe that the new station will result in more and more transport companies operating in South Ostrobothnia introducing environmentally friendly gas-fueled vehicles in their fleet,”
    says Jani Arala, Senior Sales Manager, Traffic, Gasum
    During H1, we took our strategy steadfastly forward and together with our personnel updated our strategic targets for future years. Demand for cleaner energy solutions is showing strong growth in industry and total gas sales volumes are projected to further increase.
    Johanna Lamminen, CEO, Gasum
    As a low emission fuel, the role of gas will increase in the future, above all in maritime transport and heavy-duty road transport as action to curb climate change calls for a transition to cleaner solutions.
    Johanna Lamminen, CEO, Gasum
    At our Oulu site in Finland, we are currently implementing more sustainable technologies by switching to LNG. Eastman’s partnership with Gasum has been truly incremental in our journey to improve our environmental footprint
    Sabine Ketsman, Vice President and General Manager, Eastman
    Together, these projects would produce enough liquefied biogas to replace diesel as fuel in around 120 trucks. Biogas cuts traffic emissions by up to 85% compared with diesel.
    Ari Suomilammi, Gasum
    Recent years have seen brisk growth in the popularity of gas vehicles. In 2018, for example, the number of gas passenger cars registered was almost double compared to 2017. In addition, the recent Suomalaisten autoilu 2019 motoring survey shows that drivers clocking up more than 20,000 km a year are more interested in a gas vehicle than in a fully electric vehicle,
    ays Heidi Kuoppala, Business Manager, Sales, Traffic, Gasum
    Gasum is rapidly growing its supply chain of LNG and LBG in order to support customers’ need for compliance with emission regulations. Building LNG infrastructure today will enable the use of LBG tomorrow.
    Kimmo Rahkamo, VP, Natural gas and LNG, Gasum
    There has been broad recognition in many countries that gas can help heavy-duty road vehicles to quickly cut emissions. The filling station in Oulu is part of Gasum’s Nordic network for heavy-duty road transport and we see considerable potential to increase biogas production in the Oulu area. New gas filling stations ideally deliver the circular economy, fueling demand for renewable biogas in Oulu in different vehicle segments,”
    considers Jukka Metsälä, Vice President Traffic, Gasum.
    With the use of LNG, we reduce the local pollutant emissions of maritime and heavy-duty traffic, while keeping the industry of Northern Finland competitive by offering energy that has low emissions and is affordable to the needs of different operators.
    Kimmo Rahkamo, VP, Natural gas and LNG, Gasum
    Use of gas in transport has increased very rapidly in the Lahti area and the new filling station will further fuel this development. The new station opened in Lahti is part of the Gasum filling station network being constructed for heavy-duty vehicles in the Nordic countries. The new LNG and LBG stations will be located at busy transport hubs, enabling a switch to cleaner fuels in long-distance operations
    says Jukka Metsälä, Vice President, Traffic, Gasum
    The transport industry has a key role to play in cutting emissions in society and this is reflected in the growing demands for eco-friendliness in the sector. Heavy-duty road transport needs a choice of low-emission, cost-efficient fuels. The new filling station is again a leap in the right direction,
    says Pontus Stenberg, CEO of Kiitosimeon
    Our preparations have continued ahead of the opening up of teh Finnish gas market at the start of 2020.
    Johanna Lamminen, CEO, Gasum
    Our financial performance was in line with our expectations during Q1. Our revenue increased to €396.6 million in the period under review, up 2% year on year.
    Johanna Lamminen, CEO, Gasum
    The highlights of Gasum’s year of responsibility in 2018 included improving accessibility of low-carbon fuels in the Nordics, implementing remarkable circular economy collaborations with partners and taking a major leap in developing the safety culture.
    Elina Saarivuori, Sustainability Manager, Gasum
    Buying biogas from Tampere Regional Solid Waste Management enables us to support the targets set for transport emission reductions and improve access to biogas.
    Matti Oksanen Diratcotr, Business development, Gasum
    During the year under review, gas was recognized as playing an increasingly important role in efforts to cut carbon dioxide emissions.
    Johanna Lamminen, CEO, Gasum Group
    We want to support our customers in making more sustainable everyday choices. By utilizing the food waste generated at our restaurants we are able to offer our customers a responsible filling-up option at more and more IKEA stores. At the same time, while utilizing the minor amounts of food waste generated at IKEA restaurants, we will also continue to make efforts to reduce food wastage
    says Jessica Lehtinen, Sustainability Manager, IKEA Finland.
    We’re happy about our shared aim of introducing three new gas filling stations in conjunction with IKEA stores this year. The stations already opened in Espoo and Vantaa have been a great success and used actively by customers driving gas-fueled vehicles. The filling stations increase access to gas in new areas and further support the achievement of transport emission reduction targets
    says Markus Kaarlela, Development Manager, Traffic, Gasum.
    In the coming years, we will invest strongly in the development of the Nordic gas market and infrastructure, helping the Nordic countries to reach the emission targets set.
    Johanna Lamminen, CEO, Gasum Group
    Finnish transport emissions must be cut by 50% by 2030 from the 2005 level. Compared with other emissions-generating sectors, the contribution of the transport sector will have to be the greatest. There is also major interest in LNG among transport entrepreneurs – they want to be part of the change and lead the way. LNG is also a cheaper alternative for transport companies than other fuels such as diesel
    says Juha-Matti Koskinen, Sales Manager, Heavy-Duty Transport, Gasum.
    Transport and flows of goods are needed, but transport generates a great deal of carbon dioxide emissions. Liquefied natural gas is an effective way of reducing carbon dioxide emissions from heavy-duty transport. Our choice of fuel plays a very big role in our efforts to reach the climate target
    says Anni Lemola, Head of Operational Excellence, DB Schenker.
    We are an active circular economy player and through our work develop the recycled nutrients, transport and energy markets. Our aims also include customer satisfaction, disturbance-free gas supply and distribution network expansion. In addition, we verify the compliance of our operations and also expect this from our suppliers.
    Elina Saarivuori, Sustainability Manager, Gasum
    Logistics are an integral and necessary part of wholesale operations and we want to contribute to cleaner traffic. A truck powered by eco-friendly, Finnish biogas seemed to us a natural choice. Traffic generates a considerable share of overall emissions and we’re working to reduce them through the choices we make. Compared with a diesel motor, for example, a biogas-fueled vehicle also significantly reduces noise nuisance,
    says Tommi Martikainen transport manager at Heinon Tukku.
    Emissions reductions achieved by choice of fuel play an important part in curbing traffic emissions. It’s great that Heinon Tukka has joined the growing ranks of companies whose vehicles use eco-friendly biogas. This also serves as an example to other companies planning future investments in gas-fueled delivery vehicles,
    states Jani Arala Senior Sales Manager, Traffic, at Gasum.
    The demand for gas cars is growing in Finland, and this is no wonder as gas has many advantages as a road vehicle fuel. It’s an inexpensive fuel. Our fixed price campaign offering biogas at a fixed monthly price has been highly popular. Gas cars are also competitive in terms of their purchase price compared with diesel and gasoline cars, and different gas car models are becoming increasingly available
    says Heidi Kuoppala, Sales Manager, Traffic, from Gasum.
    The working group recognized that predictability will be needed in the future, too, for the creation of the biogas market and gave a clear signal for the continued excise duty-free status of biogas. Fixed-term support for the acquisition of clean vehicles can also help accelerate the rate of emission cuts. The acquisition and operating costs of gas-fueled vehicles are already very competitive, whereas the switch to electric is currently only being anticipated as an option for ordinary people,
    says Matti Oksanen, Director, Product Management and Solutions, Biogas, from Gasum.
    It’s interesting to enter into recycled nutrients cooperation with Gasum. This is already the second circular economy project this year in which we’ve had the opportunity to participate and offer industrial operators and production processes products created as side streams.
    Algol Chemicals Managing Director Juha Jokinen
    Cooperation with Gasum reduces our carbon footprint, decreases the nutrient load on the environment and promotes the realization of energy efficiency and circular economy in the Turku region.
    Mirva Levomäki, CEO, Turun seudun puhdistamo Oy.
    Our aim for the Turku biogas plant modernization and expansion project is to implement a circular economy solution that will increase the biomass processing capacity and access to biogas and launch new refined recycled nutrient products in the market in the Turku region.
    Ari Suomilammi, Director, Biogas Production and Sourcing, Gasum
    LNG-powered vehicles can also switch to 100% Finnish and renewable liquefied biogas (LBG) without any special capital outlays.
    Sales Manager, Juha-Matti Koskinen,Gasum
    Our revenue was up 22.5% year on year at €827.4 million and our operating profit was €93.0 million.
    Johanna Lamminen, CEO, Gasum
    Completing the acquisition of Skangas gives us even better opportunities to build and develop the Nordic gas ecosystem and to respond to growing demand. We thank the Lyse Group for the good co-operation in developing the LNG market.
    Johanna Lamminen, CEO, Gasum
    We are pleased about the circular economy cooperation with the Stora Enso’s paper and pulp mill at Nymölla. The biogas plant is a sustainable solution for the processing of wastewater. Gasum is actively building a gas ecosystem for industry, marine and road transport segment in the Nordics. Due to increasing demand for low-emission traffic, we are planning to build a considerably large number of gas filling stations for the heavy-duty vehicle segment in Sweden.
    Johanna Lamminen, Chief Executive Officer of Gasum
    We want to test new, environmentally sound fuels. Feedstocks used in biogas production include inedible side streams from Valio’s production. This is circular economy at its best.
    says Mika Jyrkönen, Logistics Manager, Valio
