cargo-partner Joins Global Sustainability Initiative
The global transport and info-logistics provider, cargo-partner, has recently joined the UN Global Compact, a United Nations initiative urging companies worldwide to adopt and disclose their sustainable and socially responsible policies.
Marking cargo-partner's 40th anniversary, this significant step underscores the company's enduring commitment to environmental and social responsibility, according to Stefan Krauter, Founder and CEO of cargo-partner.
By aligning with the UN Global Compact, the company affirms its dedication to fostering sustainability in the logistics sector, promoting responsible business practices, and contributing to a more sustainable global future.
The UN Global Compact is a voluntary initiative launched in 2000 that encourages companies to align their strategies with universal principles on human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption. With over 13,000 corporate participants in 170 countries, the initiative emphasises accountability through regular reporting and encourages participants to drive change through innovative solutions and partnerships.
Prioritising sustainability, cargo-partner has been at the forefront of adopting eco-friendly alternatives and setting ambitious emission targets to reduce its carbon footprint. The company's iLogistics Center near the Vienna airport, constructed with award-winning wooden architecture in 2018, serves as a tangible example of its commitment to sustainability.
Numerous photovoltaic installations at cargo-partner locations globally contribute to the use of renewable energy. Additionally, the company actively supports the development of fuel-efficient aircraft, electric trucks, and various projects promoting the transition to sustainable transport and logistics technologies worldwide.
Cargo-partner holds ISO 14001 certifications in multiple countries, reflecting its high environmental management standards. Digitalisation initiatives have significantly reduced resource consumption, and the company's stringent quality assurance process ensures collaboration only with carriers meeting the highest standards in eco-friendly transport technologies. Furthermore, cargo-partner actively assists its clients in monitoring and reducing their carbon footprint, supporting them in achieving their sustainability goals.
Stefan Krauter emphasised, "The global climate crisis is one of the most important challenges of our time, and our dedication to sustainability remains unwavering. We will continue to minimise our environmental impact and support all stakeholders in making their operations more sustainable. Together, we are building a better world for both current and future generations."
