Newer cars, alternative power sources
Transportation accounts for approximately a quarter of all greenhouse gas emissions both in Europe and globally (European Commission and SLOCAT Transport and Climate Change Global Status Report). Passenger car transportation accounts for approximately 12 percent of the EU’s CO₂ emissions (EU Reporter). The CO₂ footprint of the car manufacturing industry is big as well, so existing vehicles should be used sensibly for the whole extent of their life-cycle and their materials should then be reused through circular economy.
Kamux renews Finland’s vehicle fleet by importing newer cars with lower CO₂ emissions compared to the average car currently used on Finnish roads. The average age of the cars we imported into Finland in 2022 was 4.8 years (5.5). However, in Finland, the average age of registered passenger cars and cars in traffic use has risen since 2007 (Statistics Finland). In Finland, greenhouse gas emissions related to transportation have decreased by approximately 19 percent between 2005 and 2020 (Traficom).
In new car retail the share of plug-in cars has increased strongly in all Kamux’s operating countries. In Sweden, for example, more than half of new cars sold are plug-in cars, but their share of the entire vehicle fleet remains quite small. In Sweden, plug-in cars represented approximately 9 percent of the entire vehicle fleet in 2022. The share of plug-in cars has also increased in used car retail, and the volume of plug-in hybrid and electric cars sold by Kamux increased by 27% from 2021.
Promoting circular economy
Kamux’s operations are a part of a circular economy where non-renewable natural resources are saved through repairs, reusing, and recycling. For their part, Kamux’s operations enable keeping existing vehicles in traffic throughout their reasonable life-cycle.
Kamux carries out used car retail by purchasing cars through its international sourcing network and from individual consumers and selling them forward. Wholesale and individual purchases are always made following Kamux’s procurement guidelines.
In 2022, maintenance and repair measures and equipment upgrades were made to 50 percent (52) of the cars we sold. With these measures we ensured that the usability of the cars we sell is as good as possible, taking into account the age of the car. Maintenance and repair measures extend its remaining reasonable life-cycle. We use recycled spare parts of high quality when possible.
The key direct environmental impact of our operations comes from emissions, which are formed when cars are transported from the place of purchase to showrooms and between showrooms. Through development of internal processes and data analytics, we strive to make the placement and logistics of cars for sale more efficient, and we strive to transport several cars at the same time whenever possible to minimize the emissions from the transportation.
We have also instructed our personnel in economic driving. By investing in leading with knowledge, we strive to combine regional supply and demand as efficiently as possible, thereby reducing the need to transport cars. We use mainly local operators for maintenance, repair, and cleaning work, which reduces the need to transfer cars around. Kamux’s fuel consumption in 2022 was 30 liters (32) per car sold.
Kamux minimizes the amount of waste and recycles waste appropriately and efficiently. We expect our suppliers and subcontractors to do the same when it comes to, for example, batteries, tires, and hazardous waste. Kamux pays Finnish Car Recycling an annual membership fee related to recycling car parts appropriately.
In 2022, the amount of waste was 53.50 metric tons (37.14), the waste recovery rate was 98 percent (83) and the recycling rate was 11 percent (10). The amount of waste and the waste recovery rate are affected by the scope of operations as well as fluctuations in waste component volumes. The information covers 44 showrooms (50) in Finland. We restrain energy consumption in our showrooms and favor low-emission energy sources on properties where we can directly influence the used energy solutions. We favor recycled furniture when furnishing our office premises.
