As an environmental pioneer, DB Schenker is setting the standard for efficient use of the resources available to us.
As society continues to face greater pressures to protect the environment, the transportation sector is being called on to make a considerable contribution to these efforts. We’re committed to leading the way in the environmental protection movement by becoming the leading green logistics services provider. We know that as transport grows, CO2 emissions can indeed be reduced.
Therefore, Finland's offices are certified in accordance with the ISO 14001: 2015 standard.
DB Schenker supports the DB Group to reduce specific CO2 emissions by 30 percent until 2020 and CO2e emissions by 50 percent until 2030 compared to 2006. To reach this goal, we’ve launched a variety of initiatives and are continuing to expand our range of green logistics products.
Acting with the environment in mind is a key issue at DB Schenker, which we support through a variety of initiatives in our business units. We seek to reduce transport miles by consolidation, shift to the most environmentally friendly mode of transport and increase efficiency by continuous fleet renewals.. We are focused on developing environmentally-sustainable logistics solutions.
Currently, DB Schenker offers Eco Solutions for every mode of transportation, allowing customers to reduce or compensate for CO2 emissions along the entire supply chain. As such, we can cut CO2 emissions by up to 20 percent in air freight and up to 50 percent in ocean freight. Environmentally-friendly solutions are also available for land transport regarding innovative engines and fuels and by using energy-efficient, sustainable measures in all our buildings. As a global leader focused on green logistics, DB Schenker is able to calculate and provide the CO2 footprint of our customers’ supply chains in a transparent way, and can offer recommendations for optimization.
