The road to sustainability

As a transport business, we at Group-GTS are aware of our impact on the climate and the importance of doing something about it. Continuously investing in the future is one thing. Taking social responsibility is another, and a must. Together with Greenfish, we defined some ambitious goals in a sustainability roadmap.

As Group-GTS, we want to commit ourselves to reducing absolute CO2 emissions. And that by as much as 25% by 2025. Ambitious, certainly. But not impossible, provided a well-developed strategy is in place.

Sustainability roadmap

Our action plan for a sustainable future

As we are well aware of the impact of our activities on the climate, we decided to develop an ambitious sustainability strategy. One of the pillars of the strategy is environmental impact. As Group-GTS, we want to commit ourselves to reducing absolute CO2 emissions. And that by as much as 25% by 2025.

Ambitious, dynamic, flexible

Together with Greenfish, we set the following goals as a first step towards carbon neutrality:

  • Reduce our empty kilometres by 5% by mid-2022
  • Ensure that 10% of revenues come from multimodal transport by 2023
  • 100% of our fleet to run on 25% alternative fuel by 2024

Ambitious, but not impossible. It is important to note that our roadmap is a static conclusion to a dynamic situation. Whether a reduction of emissions can be achieved will largely depend on the development of the market, the emergence of new technologies and customer requirements. We therefore like to speak of a flexible action plan to achieve our goal as cost-effectively and intelligently as possible.
