On Tuesday April 12th, 2016 during the LOG2016, the first Lean and Green Stars were awarded in Germany. Many companies in Germany want to contribute to CO2 reduction and to take action against climate change. They are supported by the initiative Lean & Green of GS1 Germany. As part of Lean & Green, companies undertake to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions in logistics by 20 percent within five years. Two companies have achieved this goal and have now been awarded the Lean & Green Star: Rigterink logistik and US Heibo Logistics.
Four Lean and Green Awards
Simultaneously, Aldi Süd, Mars, and Rubetrans Zeh Internationale Spedition received their Lean & Green Award for their action plan towards their CO2-target.
