Strategic environmental commitment
The debate concerning climate change and measures to restrict harmful emissions has reached a new climax. As the world’s largest logistics service provider, we give rise to significant greenhouse gas emissions. We have, however, long been aware of our environmental responsibility and act accordingly – as illustrated by numerous individual measures. In 2007, we focused on a range of climate-neutral products in our GOGREEN initiative. We were the world’s first logistics company to adopt the goal of reducing the greenhouse gas emissions from road transport activities in Europe – as envisaged by the Kyoto Protocol – by 5% by 2012 compared with 1990.
