Ahlers Belgium to receive Lean & Green award
Time to make it happen
Sustainability in forwarding
How to realize a drop in CO2 emission in a sector on the rise? That is the question we had to answer in order to qualify for the Lean & Green award. Our approach plan was handed in with the Lean & Green organization in October 2017. A couple of months later we are very happy to receive green light from a panel of specialist at the University of Brussels. They believe our ideas will be adequate to reach the goal set by the organization: a drop of 20% of our CO2 emission by 2022.
We are proud, although we do realize this award is just the first step in a lengthy process. Now it’s up to us to make it happen and go for that first star.
The Lean & Green movement started 10 years ago in The Netherlands. Today they are a group of over 500 companies throughout Europe all working on sustainable ways to unite ecology with economy in the battle against pollution and congestion. Ahlers Belgium is one of the first forwarders to have joined the movement.
