Sustainability

Our diverse range of carbon efficiency measures and sustainable services not only benefit society and the environment, but also create value for us and our customers.

OUR VISION FOR THE FUTURE

The government announced its intention to go “net zero” by 2050. Going net zero means removing as many emissions as we produce, which is vital if we’re to get a grip on climate breakdown. That means that as well as polluting less and holding big fossil fuel companies to account, we need to re-think how we use our land and natural resources. At Santis this is something we are investing in and planning so we can be Net Zero by 2030.

ENGAGING WITH SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES

The Shared Value proposition plays an important role in all of our environmental protection activities. Shared Value is about strengthening our market position by engaging in social and environmental issues and integrating these into our core business.

Our diverse range of carbon efficiency measures and sustainable services not only benefit society and the environment, but also create value for us and our customers. Saving on fuel or electricity, for example, also means lower operating costs over the long term, which is why investments in green technologies pay off.

By 2025

We want to:

N
Certify 50% of our employees as sustainability specialists and get them involved in our environmental and climate protection activities. This includes joining partners to plant trees and protect our forests.
N
Increase our carbon efficiency by 50% compared to 2016 levels.
N
Reduce local air pollution emissions by operating 70% of our own first and last mile services with clean pick-up and delivery solutions, such as bicycles and electric vehicles.
N
Have more than 50% of our sales incorporate Green Solutions. In this way we also make our customers’ supply chains greener.

Environmental Goals

By the year 2030 we want to reduce all logistics-related emissions to zero. Re-inventing logistics to become emissions neutral in the next decade is clearly a huge challenge for the team at Santis Global. But we are optimistic that we can achieve this goal – with the help of new technologies, the dedication and expertise of our employees and through collaboration with our customers and partners.
