The city of Gothenburg is actively committed to minimizing its environmental footprint and has several high-profile initiatives in place. This includes Green City Zones, a collaboration between Volvo Cars, Rise and Business Region Gothenburg, to build a climate-neutral transportation system by 2030. In another initiative, Göteborgs Stads Leasing (GSL) is driving change, with the goal of transitioning the city’s vehicles into a fully fossil-free fleet by 2023. Currently, 58% of the fleet is fossil-free.
The collaboration between Tietoevry and GSL includes Tietoevry’s leasing and asset finance platform. The system is designed to support the lifecycle of the business, making it ideal for a company like GSL that provides operational and financial leases to the city of Gothenburg. Assets financed include cars, vehicles and office equipment.
“We have high ambitions when it comes to our environmental goals,” says Malin Carlsson at GSL. “But that’s what you need today if you want to make a difference. With this new leasing solution, we will be able to keep track and reuse objects and office equipment to a higher degree than before – extending the life of products where possible, becoming more sustainable.”
With the migration to the new leasing platform, GSL gets a modern SaaS solution that scales with requirements, along with end-to-end support from Tietoevry. The system enables GSL to unify two business areas in a single leasing platform. Additional efficiencies come in the form of highly automated processes, such as application and scoring, decision-making, and documentation, along with advanced self-service portals. The full-service contract is set to run for eight years.
“More and more of our customers are looking for solutions that can help them meet their sustainability goals,” says Perhenrik Berg – Head of Leasing at Tietoevry. “Green asset finance is now a key part of our business. We believe it is cases like this that highlight how tech solutions can help organizations to deliver on their goals. We are proud to be associated with GSL and the city of Gothenburg as they embrace the circular economy on their way to becoming one of Europe’s greenest cities.”
