Our understanding of sustainability: mindful and responsible action

As an internationally operating logistics company, we, at Thermotraffic, are aware of our corporate responsibility. For this reason, we have been committed to ecologically and socially responsible corporate management for many years. We focus on the key ingredients in our business activities: our employees and the environment.

Our aspiration goes beyond business figures and short and medium term business goals: We think long-term and, thus, want to enable future generations to have a liveable future. We consistently align our corporate decisions with this basic principle.

Sustainable management with the ZNU standard

We want to achieve this goal with the holistic sustainability management system of the Center for Sustainable Corporate Management (ZNU) at the University of Witten/Herdecke. One of our main emphases is to reduce our CO2 emissions as much as possible. However, the certification according to the ZNU standard goes beyond the reduction of emissions. It also includes aspects such as fair competition, human rights, occupational safety, regional commitment, and fair value chains. Its implementation takes place step by step and by means of measurable, continuous measures.

Also in the future: Thermotraffic as a reliable partner

We pursue our sustainability commitment, because we are convinced of it and thereby ensure that we will continue to be a reliable and recognized partner for our stakeholders in the future. At the same time, we expect our business partners to support us in terms of a holistic approach to sustainability so that we can jointly contribute to sustainable change.
