ICT Logistics and the Environment
As a transport and logistics company, we have a responsibility for minimizing the environmental impact of our activities. Our aim is to be the preferred transport and logistics partner in all our core markets, and for all customers who deem the environment as a key focus area. We commit to reduce the environmental impact of our activities, through continuous improvements, and by complying with all statutory requirements.
The focus of our environmental efforts are:
Partner and employee involvement
Employee conduct and training
Modern & efficient fleet
We are open to new ideas and initiatives which can lead to further optimisation
Measurements of our eco-efficiency and transparency about the progress we have made towards a better environment
The success of our efforts to reduce the impact of our activities on the global climate depends entirely on the company’s employees sharing our vision for better environment and obtain their buy-in to achieve our environmental objectives. Our annual environmental report is a key element in the ongoing communication to - and dialogue with - our clients, employees, and business partners in general. We are always open to new ideas and initiatives to reduce the environmental impact of our combined transport activities.
During 2012, we developed a framework for the environmental work and formulated our environmental policy. We measure the effect of our work through several KPI’s and review and update our action plan annually. We have chosen 2012 as our base year, and this forms the basis for our improvement measurements. In 2013, we published our initial annual environmental report to document our work in the environmental area and our eco-efficiency for the previous year. By the end of 2022, our goal is to achieve a reduction in our CO2 e emissions per tonne/km of 25% compared to 2012.

Careful Planning - Cutting Emissions - Cutting Costs
A key element of contributing to a more sustainable transport sector is to improve the efficiency of the way we are transporting goods. This can be achieved through reduction of the number of trips we do with only partially loaded vehicles or without any loaded cargo at all, the so-called "empty runs"
