Sustainable performance at a competitive price
Zijderlaan strives to do business sustainably. By taking deliberate measures that not only reduce costs, but reduce environmental impact at the same time, Zijderlaan is optimising its (sustainable) transport. Partly because of this, Zijderlaan has participated in the Lean and Green Connekt Programme in the last five years. For the coming years, Zijderlaan has prepared a CO2 footprint and related reduction plan to monitor and reduce CO2 emissions.
The CO2 performance ladder is a certified measuring instrument to provide companies with insight into their CO2 emissions. A part of the CO2 performance ladder is the preparation of a CO2 footprint and a corresponding reduction plan. This footprint maps the overall emissions of the organisation (per scope). The transparency means that the entire organisation can work to reduce its CO2 emissions.
Lean and Green is a distinctive network for efficiency and sustainability of mobility. The Connekt programme aims to make a concrete and pragmatic contribution to the sustainability of the logistics chain. After testing and approval by TNO and Connekt, Zijderlaan has been named the winner of the Lean and Green Award.
With the Lean and Green Award, Zijderlaan has demonstrated its active efforts to make its logistics process more sustainable. The Lean and Green Award is awarded on the basis of a plan of action. This describes how the company should reduce its CO2 emissions by more than 20% over a 5-year period, while increasing its profitability.
