Environmental considerations and sustainability are at the heart of Valtra’s strategy and not simply greenwashing. Sustainability cuts through all operations, from tractor production to property maintenance and the life cycle of finished tractors.
Versatility in particular makes environmental protection effective. There is no one-size-fits-all trick that solves all puzzles. The best environmental impact is achieved by, for example, minimising our carbon footprint in all operations.
The results of our environmental deeds improve each year. For example, energy consumption has been reduced between 2018 and 2022 by approximately 18 percent, while the carbon footprint of transportation has been reduced
by 17 percent in the same period.
Valtra offers tools to its customers
Reducing the environmental footprint of the Valtra factory is not enough, however. Society also expects more environmentally friendly activities from farmers, contractors and the entire agricultural sector. Valtra wants to offer different tools to enable this.
The conditions and situations of farmers and contractors vary, so the same patent solutions do not suit everyone. More than 90 percent of a tractor's carbon footprint comes from its operating energy. For this reason, Valtra offers many different solutitons to choose from as needed, such as the EcoPower low-rev feature of our engines, factory-remanufactured engines and transmissions, and alternative fuels.
Sustainability and environmental friendliness are nothing new to Valtra. We have operated according to the ISO 14001 environmental standard since 2000. Valtra also strives to comply with the UN’s sustainable development goals.
