Sustainability and the Environment
Logistics with responsibility
Especially in the area of transport and logistics, companies increasingly face a number of challenges that have an impact on our coexistence. Emissions, the consumption of resources and environmentally friendly waste disposal – all these are topics that global players in the field of logistics should concern themselves with.
As a responsible and forward-thinking company, it’s important to us to contribute to sustainable logistics. For instance, with transport and logistics processes that are organised according to environmental protection in compliance with our ISO 14001 standard. This international norm defines certain requirements enabling a company to accomplish its environmental goals, fulfil its legal requirements and improve its environmental performance in general.
Taking into account the three pillars of sustainability - ecology, social issues and economy - we prepare an annual sustainability report in accordance with the latest requirements as well as an overall balance sheet of the CO2 equivalents of our company.
With e-mobility into the Future
E-mobility is a hot topic at the moment – and not only in the field of logistics. For Quehenberger Logistics, it is a point of honour to back this kind of innovative future thinking. Together with our suppliers, we work to optimise the performance and practicability of electrically powered commercial vehicles. Exciting pilot projects additionally set new standards in inner-city traffic.
Together for Sustainable Logistics
Under the banner of sustainable logistics, Quehenberger is part of various initiatives in this area. As a member of the CNL (Council for Sustainable Logistics), we take important steps towards sustainability. Together with 18 of the biggest Austrian companies in the fields of retail, logistics and production, we pursue our goal of “green”, sustainable logistics.
Our collaboration with EcoVadis, a platform for sustainable development, is another essential contribution to sustainable logistics. Every year, we are rated regarding sustainability along the supply chain by external EcoVadis auditors. Upon activating a Scorecard, you as our customer can also have a look at our results.
Additionally, our entire international fleet is comprised of Euro-6 vehicles and operates on biodiesel. In Euro-6 vehicles, this lowers the CO2 emissions by two thirds. We’re proud to have one of the most efficient and environmentally sustainable fleets in Europe!
