Gasum Sustainability Highlights in 2021 – We enabled carbon dioxide emission reductions of 345,000 tonnes for our customers through biogas

The energy company Gasum has published its Sustainability Report and Highlights for 2021. The report focuses on key impacts from the social, environmental and economic perspectives.  

Sustainability is an integral part of Gasum’s strategy to promote development towards a carbon-neutral future in industry as well as in road and maritime transport. Gasum’s responsibility work is steered by the company’s Corporate Responsibility Program and targets, which cover environmental responsibility, social responsibility, responsible business and governance.

Gasum is committed to operating sustainably by increasing the availability of low-carbon energy and promoting the circular economy. We make it possible for our customers to reduce emissions, we operate energy efficiently and minimize the environmental impacts of our own operations. We promote safe and secure working environments for our employees and partners and ensure responsible business practices.

Highlights in 2021:

  • We promoted climate work by enabling 345,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emission reductions for our customers through biogas
  • We promoted the circular economy by utilizing 880,000 tonnes of waste and waste food as well as 4,000,000 tonnes of wastewater as feedstock in biogas production
  • We produced around 1,000,000 tonnes of recycled nutrients
  • Our energy consumption was down 3.5% compared to the previous year. We missed our zero accident target, but our total recordable injury frequency (TRIF) was down 3.7% compared to a year earlier
  • We expanded our biogas production capacity by 25% year on year
  • Energy delivery volumes were up in all our business areas – industry, and maritime and road transport

”Responsibility is part of our daily decision-making. We aim for a cumulative carbon emission reduction of a million tonnes with the help of biogas. We intend to bring 4 TWh of biogas to market from our own production and that of our certified partners by 2025. The cleaner energy and recycled fertilizers we offer are of importance in the sustainability work of our customers. We reached our targets in 2021 despite the challenging operating environment. We also support the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and work to promote them,” says Elina Saarivuori, Sustainability Manager, Gasum.

Using biogas, Essity becomes first in the world with large-scale tissue production without fossil CO\2\ emissions

As of January 2022, the Swedish-based hygiene and health company Essity is the first in the world to produce tissue paper on a large scale without any fossil-based CO2 emissions. Together with Gasum, Essity’s production facility in Lilla Edet successfully switched over from natural gas to biogas, allowing carbon dioxide emissions to be reduced to zero under normal operations. 

Gasum first delivered liquefied biogas (LBG) to its customer, Essity, at the end of March 2021 during a testing period. After just nine months, Essity is now the first in the world to produce tissue paper on a large scale without fossil CO2 emissions having switched over to LBG for all deliveries. This remarkable step towards a carbon-neutral future was achieved by replacing natural gas with biogas at their Edet Bruk production facility in Lilla Edet, Sweden. The mill produces Essity products under brand names like Tork and Lotus. 

“Essity wants to contribute to a sustainable society. We help customers and consumers to make choices that reduce negative impact on the environment and minimize our carbon footprint. We are proud to be first in the world with large-scale tissue production without fossil CO2 emissions. This means we can now offer products like kitchen- and toilet paper that people use daily, with a better sustainability profile. It is just one important step of many to break barriers to well-being through leading and sustainable hygiene and health solutions,” says Christian Carlsson, Site Manager at Edet Bruk tissue mill.

Liquefied biogas is produced from food waste, manure or other biodegradable raw materials, and is therefore a 100% renewable fuel that can reduce CO2 emissions over its life cycle by up to 90% compared to conventional fuel. 

In the case of Edet Bruk, the transition from natural gas to biogas will reduce fossil CO2 emissions by around 9,000 tonnes annually. As natural gas and biogas are largely methane, an interchangeable switch between the two was possible and cost-efficient as no further investments were required.

 “As one of the largest biogas producers in the Nordic countries, we are very excited to be part of Essity’s transition. Working together at the forefront of sustainable energy solutions generates experiences and lessons that can be used to accelerate the transition for other industries as well. By continuing our investments in increasing biogas production, we will be able to help more actors in the industry, maritime, and the transport sector to take the steps needed to become carbon neutral,” says Tommy Mattila, Vice President, Industry, Gasum.

Onninen uses biowaste from K-stores to deliver to customer sites – gas reduces emissions in Uusimaa

Part of K Group, Onninen serves technical wholesale business customers and makes deliveries to customers in Greater Helsinki and the Uusimaa region using two new biogas-powered trucks. These low-emission, biogas-powered trucks are operated by Timecap Oy. 

It is now possible to come across biogas-powered trucks delivering goods to Onninen customers in Greater Helsinki and the Uusimaa region. Onninen is part of K Group and part of a model example of the circular economy. The biogas used to refuel the new fleet comes from Gasum’s biogas plant where renewable fuel is produced among other things from inedible food waste from K stores.


The biogas-powered trucks are operated by Timecap Oy in transports to Onninen customers and their building sites. This is the first time in Finland that biogas-powered vehicles are being used in goods deliveries to building sites. Timecap specializes in transport services tailored to customer needs. 


“Circular economy solutions are at the heart of our sustainability strategy and the use of biogas-powered trucks in logistics is an excellent example of this. Cleaner transports are again one step in the development of our distribution and logistics services that we are constantly taking in a more climate friendly direction. We believe that our customers are also pleased with this decision since by reducing our own carbon footprint, we can also help them to reach their own emissions reduction ambitions,” says Samuli Pohjonen Transport Manager at Onninen. 

Onninen has already used an e-truck in deliveries in Greater Helsinki and in the summer an e-cargobike for customer deliveries in the Helsinki Region.

Lower carbon footprint through long-term cooperation

Cleaner transports are part of Kesko’s and Gasum’s long-tern development work aimed at supporting Kesko’s responsibility ambitions and reducing the company’s carbon footprint. Kesko’s and Onninen’s objective is to reach carbon neutrality by 2025. Emissions are being systematically reduced so that the company’s own operations and transports will be entirely emission-free by 2030. 


“Being part of the circular economy is one of the most effective ways to take a leap towards a carbon-neutral future. Switching to heavy-duty vehicles using biogas allows rapid, cost-effective reductions both in carbon dioxide and local emissions. Climate goals set at the national and EU level are strongly guiding future investments and it’s encouraging to see companies introducing low-emission fuels and gas-powered vehicles as an opportunity to create value for customers and society alike,” says Juha-Matti Koskinen, Sales Manager, Traffic, at Gasum. 

Biogas is made from organic waste, such as household and company biowaste, sludges and other side streams, and is suitable as a transport fuel or for industrial use. In road use, biogas can help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90% compared to the well to wheel emissions from fossil fuels. In addition, use of biogas creates only a fraction of local emissions such as nitrogen oxides and particulates, which improves urban air quality. Gasum’s Nordic filling station network serving heavy-duty vehicles is continuously being expanded to allow increasingly more companies to switch to gas logistics.
