How we take responsibility for the environment
Environmental protection is an increasingly pressing issue all over the world. Every business today needs to consider how they can contribute to a more sustainable future. Being a logistics and transport company is no exception. This is what we do.
The Greencarrier Spirit fund – a commitment to sustainability projects
As transports have a significant impact on the environment, we think it’s extra important to make sure we reduce our ecological footprint as much as possible.
Therefore, in 2011, we decided to start a CSR fund that we call the Greencarrier Spirit fund. A part of the Greencarrier Group’s profit is assigned to CSR projects and everyone in the group can apply for support from this fund.
The aim is to promote commitment to sustainability projects and create good examples of how we work with sustainability, both locally and globally. The Greencarrier Spirit fund is open for all types of CSR activities, but we want to give special encouragement to environmental projects.
Environmental Review and Ambitions
This spring we have performed an environmental review in our group to find out how we can improve our environmental impact and increase our knowledge and awareness about the environment. With this as a foundation we can now take the next step.
How we engage and take care of the environment
As we believe it’s important for us to be involved in environmental issues, we engage and take care of the environment on many levels.
Improving our environmental impact
Considering transportation’s significant environmental impact, we strive to reduce the use of resources and prevent pollution of the air, water and soil and thereby constantly improving our environmental performance. We calculate emissions and evaluate our largest suppliers.
Increasing knowledge and awareness about the environment
Our ambition is to stimulate each employee to increase their knowledge about environmental issues, and be aware of the environmental aspects of their duties. We are introducing environmental training for all staff.
Communicating how we take responsibility for the environment
In order to spread knowledge about our environmental work we continuously communicate this work both internally and externally. (This blog article is one way of doing that!).
Involving everyone and complying with laws as a minimum
Customers, suppliers and other partners are, together with our employees, involved in this endeavor. As a minimum, we comply with laws, ordinances, regulations and other requirements. We want to go further than what the legislation requires from us.
Finding more sustainable projects
Our ambition is to increase our efforts to improve our environmental impact by finding more projects to support in this field. Our Greencarrier Spirit fund is one way of doing that.
