Bolloré Logistics is further reducing its carbon footprint, following the launch of its CSR programme ‘Powering Sustainable Logistics’ in 2018.
The logistics business said it has committed to cut 30% (relative to 2019) of its Scope 3 CO2 emissions, which are generated by the execution of transport services, by 2030.
To achieve this, the company is transforming its existing systems to include data that reflects the impact of its transport operations on the environment. It is also working to reduce its use of plastics and cardboard within across its network.
Additionally, Bolloré Logistics’ B.Lab is an organisation within the company that was put in place to support innovation initiatives by giving its customers a central role in the collaborative approach.
The B.Lab aims to design robust, agile and sustainable solutions devised and developed at the company’s two centres in Paris and Singapore.
The B.Lab is working on five fields including sustainable logistics.
“Throughout the network, dedicated team are working on developing new solutions together with our partners and clients using the most recent technologies: AI, robotics, IoT and Blockchain,” said Cindy Patan, media relations at Bolloré Logistics.
Thierry Ehrenbogen, chief executive of Bolloré Logistics, commented: “We are faced with major challenges for the planet, calling for a considerable transformation across the entire supply chain.
“Our CSR programme, Powering Sustainable Logistics, is aimed at boosting our contribution to the resolution of these social and environmental issues. Our Scope 3 objective is extremely ambitious but fully necessary for contributing to the fight against climate change.
Odile Maarek, CSR Director at Bolloré Logistics, added: “Bolloré Logistics has for several years supported its customers in their growth by providing eco-responsible solutions. Focused initially on key account customers, Bolloré Logistics’ sustainable supply-chain offering is being strengthened across all segments and, at the same time, rolled out widely and industrialised.”
Bolloré Logistics’ sustainability goals and achievements, which also aim to meet some of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, are detailed every year in its CSR report.
