Environmental protection at DB Schenker
Environmental and climate protection are major challenges that will need to be tackled now. DB Schenker handles this responsibility for its customers by offering customer advice and green solutions.
The environmental advantage at DB Schenker is based on an international network that finds smart ways to connect all modes of transportation – from trucks and freight trains to ships and airplanes. DB Schenker combines the strengths of all of these modes of transportation not only according to economic aspects, but also according to environmental aspects.Due to its integrated company structure, it can identify the right carrier mix for your global supply chain. It also offers several individual climate-friendly measures, from training drivers on how to use energy-saving driving techniques to preventing empty stock movements by using the network-wide hub system.
In addition to its internal measures, it is DB Schenker’s growing responsibility for value-added processes across companies in particular that makes the company a pioneer in environmental performance.
The Eco triangle serves as a strategic guide. The corners of the triangle show the different directions in the supply chain that DB Schenker aims to target with its key figure-based environmental performance. Starting with the company’s own input into operations, the most environmentally friendly suppliers need to be selected in purchasing and an appropriate environmental monitoring system needs to be put in place. This also applies to subcontractors. DB Schenker works hand in hand with you on climate protection. Areas of responsibility and influence are outlined in in-depth consultations. DB Schenker works with you to first explore what measures can be used to cut your emissions and where, and then determine which of DB Schenker’s internal measures can make an additional contribution to environmental protection. Your climate protection targets are supported directly by projects designed in collaboration. Sales offers you solutions that are intended primarily to help you improve your climate protection and pollutant footprint.
Whether you transport your goods by train, truck, ship or airplane, store them in our warehouses, or transship them at our terminals, you can save CO2 everywhere. We can also optimize your supply chains by intelligently linking together different kinds of transport because less energy consumed means far-reaching protection for the environment.
