European label for sustainable transport awarded

01-12-2014

Green frontrunners awarded for taking steps in reporting and reducing emissions

Green Freight Europe (GFE) has awarded  European companies with its 'first leaf' - an award given to companies that have shared CO2 data and information on policies, strategy and intentions to reduce CO2 emissions from transport operations. Heineken, IKEA, Krummen Kerzers and Aviko were among the awarded*.

The first leaf is part of a four-tier labelling program by GFE that recognizes and benchmarks members based on their efforts and measures to further improve on CO2 reduction.

Next steps
In 2015 GFE, the leading industry driven program to support companies in improving the environmental performances of freight transport in Europe, will further improve on CO2 data exchange. Additionally, all members have access to the GFE Sharing Platform offering expert knowledge, best practices and other information supporting the industry to further improve on their environmental performance and to intensify collaboration. GFE will continue to raise the bar for its members but strives to recognize more members with additional leaves next year.
