Help lead logistics towards a greener future
Sustainability has long since become one of the most important issues of our time. Our contribution to greater sustainability around the world is green logistics. To realise a more sustainable future we think it’s important to think big.
Our climate protection target is to reduce all logistics-related emissions to zero by the year 2050. To help realise this vision of zero-emission logistics, we have established a number of ambitious interim goals.
By the year 2025, we want to:
- Increase our carbon efficiency by 50% compared to 2007 levels
- Aim to improve the lives of people right where they live and work, using clean pick-up and delivery solutions for 70% of our first and last mile services, such as bicycles and electric vehicles
- Have more than 50% of our sales incorporate Green Solutions. In this way we also make our customers’ supply chains greener
- Certify 80% of our employees as GoGreen specialists and get them involved in our environmental and climate protection activities. This includes joining partners to plant one million trees every year to protect our forests.
Our culture and workplaces are built on respect, recognition and equal opportunities. We have been recognised through various awards for this, including the Great Place to Work Award, Top Employers Institute Award and the Australian Business Awards Employer of Choice.
