On the 11th of October 2021, the Cluster for Logistics Luxembourg hosted the 5th edition of the Lean & Green Awards at the Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce and presented the Lean & Green Awards 2021 in presence of Mr Claude Turmes, Minister of Energy and Spatial Planning. At this year’s Lean & Green Awards 2021, 4 companies were awarded for their efforts and achievements regarding the reduction of CO2 emissions generated from transport and logistics activities.
Of these 4 companies, 2 have decided to join the Lean & Green initiative in Luxembourg in 2021. In particular, De Verband, a cooperative active in the agricultural sector, and Sales-Lentz, a major passenger transport company in the field of urban transport and mobility, have set up audited and eligible action plans that provide both companies the framework to reduce their CO2 emissions from transport and logistics activities by at least 20% within the coming 5 years. For the commitment of joining the program and developing individual action plans to allow to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, both companies were awarded the Lean & Green Label.
Besides these 2 companies, 2 other companies, Luxport Group, a logistics and transport company from the port of Mertert, and Transalliance, an international road transport company located in Bettembourg-Dudelange, have managed to demonstrate a 20% reduction of their transport-related CO2 emissions compared to 2015. For these achievements both companies have received the 1st Lean & Green Star in Luxembourg.
