OUR GOGREEN PROGRAMME
Our climate protection goals are in keeping with our Shared Value approach. As early as 2008 we became the first major logistics company to make a voluntary commitment to improving our carbon efficiency by 30% over the 2007 baseline by the year 2020. In our effort to reach this target, our environmental protection programme GoGreen developed measures to improve the carbon efficiency of our air and road transport operations as well as that of our buildings and facilities. We achieved this goal in 2016, well ahead of schedule.
Our environmental protection programme GoGreen is our way of ensuring a sustainable future for our planet. By the year 2050, we want to reduce our logistics-related emissions generated by our business to zero.
Our environmental protection programme GoGreen has set ambitious environmental targets. Given that we want to reduce our logistics-related greenhouse gas and air pollutant emissions to zero by the year 2050, and achieve several ambitious interim goals by 2025, the programme focuses first and foremost on emissions reduction measures. Our approach here is guided by two core principles: first, Burn Less, which is about reducing energy consumption, and second Burn Clean, which involves the use of alternative energy sources and fuels.
