European Logistics: Going Green

OceanBlue Logistics is aware of its responsibilities and none more so than going green.

A report, Transport and Environment: On the way to a new common transport policy, issued by the European Environment Agency (EEA) says that transport and logistics is responsible for 21% of total greenhouse gas emissions within the EU. This excludes international aviation and maritime transport.

93% of all transport and logistics emissions are contributed by road transport according to the report.

The report refers to the EU’s Sustainable Development Strategy in calling for a reduction in transport and logistics emissions to reduce the overall carbon dioxide emissions by 20% by 2020.

We intend to tackle this challenge together with our suppliers and hauliers to reduce our carbon footprint with environmentally friendly solutions, for example:

  • Utilising rail services where available (already using rail services in Norway, Sweden, Finland, Russia and Kazakhstan).
  • Recycling dunnage (over 90% already achieved)
  • Waste management (under discussion with landlord and local council)
  • Delivering documents electronically (over 45% already achieved)
