To decrease the greenhouse gas emissions due tocommercial transport within the building sector (English)
Abstract [en]

As more people become aware of the factors of climate change, soincreases the ambition to lower greenhouse gas emissions (alsoreferred to as GHG emissions). To take action, as one of Sweden'sleading construction companies, in mitigating the greenhouse gasemissions of commercial transport will not only lower the company'simpact on the climate but will also create other benefits, such asgoodwill and a sustainable trademark.

NCC Group has set a goal to halve their emissions of GHG within fiveyears. In the long-term, NCC aims for a zero emission level.Regulations and laws on both national and international level, butalso municipality specific regulations, set higher demands on, inparticular, commercial transport, fuel and fleets of vehicles.This report examines the possibilities to reduce GHG emissions forcommercial transport, to and from NCC Building's construction sites.An initial literature study of factors concerning GHG emissions,together with communication with suppliers, form the basis of datagathering, using a quantitative survey and qualitative interviews,which outline the hauls, fuels, vehicle types and other relevantparameters regarding GHG emissions.

Lastly, calculations are made for a few of NCC Building's frameworkagreement suppliers. The calculations take into account theadditional costs incurred and how GHG emissions would decrease, withregard to a change in fuel, from ordinary diesel to a fossil-freealternative, HVO.

The report's conclusions and recommendations emphasise the fact thata change of fuel is viable and cost-effective and the possibilityrequire this in future framework agreements is also discussed.
