As part of our environmental responsibility, we are already implementing environmental sustainability initiatives that cover all aspects of our company activities.  From reducing greenhouse gas emissions and using energy-efficient technologies to switching to more environmentally friendly alternatives and avoiding waste, we consider our environmental impact in the supply chain. By using the latest innovations, we work together with our clients to create sustainable solutions that balance efficient processes with environmental protection.

Our environmental
sustainability goals

Purchase of 100% green electricity worldwide since January 2023

For our distribution centers, we have been purchasing 100% green electricity since the beginning of 2023 wherever we do not produce electricity for our own use with the help of photovoltaic systems.

50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030

We are committed to reducing 50% greenhouse gas emissions from Scope 1 and Scope 2  by 2030 compared to the 2018 baseline. Similarly, we have set a target to reduce 50% of greenhouse gases from Scope 1, 2 and 3 per package by 2030.

Offsetting of unavoidable greenhouse gas emissions from 2030

From 2030 onwards, unavoidable emissions will be offset from a portfolio of voluntary climate protection projects that bind CO2 emissions from the atmosphere in the long term and thus effectively neutralize the emissions caused by us.

The joint consideration of economic, ecological and social aspects in our logistics processes is an absolute necessity for us. For this reason, 'sustainable logistics' is synonymous for us with an investment in the future.
