Thermotraffic receives the environmental award for its improved CO2 balance

Versmold – April 19, 2018 –Thermotraffic GmbH, the logistics company from Versmold, was awarded the “Lean and Green Award” at the retail logistics congress in Cologne for its commitment to environmental protection and sustainability. The Lean & Green initiative gives this award to companies which contribute especially to the protection of the environment and reduce their CO2 emissions by at least 20 %.

Thermotraffic even plans on reducing its CO2 emissions over the next few years by up to 35 percent and bets on an especially elaborated action plan to reach this ambitious goal. Then plan comprises the deployment of low-emission vehicles equipped with the Euro 5 and Euro 6 emission standard and efficient loading of its transports. By loading on double decks, Thermotraffic wants to increase the number of pallets to be transported and at the same time reduce the number of kilometers driven. Fewer vehicles better used to capacity can thus reduce the fuel consumption. To reduce the diesel consumption and the emissions, Thermotraffic also intends to train its drivers with regard to environmental friendly driving. Fuel-efficient driving will then be rewarded by means of a premium system.

“By joining the Lean & Green initiative, Thermotraffic wants to actively contribute to the environmental protection”, Falko Thomas, managing director of Thermotraffic GmbH says. “At the same time, our decision was of course also influenced by economic factors”. The CO2 efficiency thus counts more during tenders than a few years ago. Many ordering customers recognize the growing importance of the CO2 management. "For us, it is a given that we economize sustainably and thus reduce the environment damage as much as possible”, Thomas says.
Thermotraffic intends to reduce the CO2 emissions by up to 35 percent within five years. By reaching this goal, Thermotraffic would also qualify as candidate for the „Lean and Green Star”. The TÜV NORD verifies the reduction by means of a uniform audit system.
With the „Lean and Green Award”, Thermotraffic emphasizes once again its commitment in environmental protection and sustainability. Thereby, the company wants to save 3,344 tons of CO2 in five years.
