There may be a long road ahead, but we’re making progress. With our European transport coverage spanning over 300 million kilometers each year, sustainability is no longer just related to our business, it IS our business. That's why we brought over 50 transport and logistics suppliers, partners and employees together at Stella Artois' birthplace in Leuven, Belgium, for a day set to inspire and accelerate progress towards our newest Climate Action goal - reducing carbon emissions across our value chain by 25% by 2025.
The day ended on a high. We closed with strong commitments from 7 of our largest transport suppliers to contribute to our Climate Action goal and with very ambitious and innovative co-created plans lead by regional logistics teams, laying the road to a remarkable 30% reduction in CO2 equivalent across our European transport and logistic operations by 2025 - an amazing 5% above our already ambitious global target of 25%!
The day's highlights also included special presenters Volvo Trucks, who introduced their very exciting electric and autonomous electric vehicle program and Shell, who spoke to the benefits of using Liquified Natural Gas over diesel for up to 20% CO2 savings on fuel.
While the trucks may be blue, don't be confused...the future is bright, lean and green!
